The Nanaimo Port Authority has suspended the $22-million floating cruise ship terminal project because it has not received the federal environmental assessment permits required to proceed with tender and construction of the terminal.
"It's with a profound sense of disappointment that we've been forced to make the decision to suspend this project that's been six years in the planning," Bob Bennie, board chairman said in a press release Thursday.
