The B.C. government is a year overdue on its spring 2014 target of unveiling a detailed project scope and business plan to replace the Massey Tunnel with a new bridge.

Final arguments wrapped up Friday in a court challenge of the federal government's move to ban home growing of medical marijuana by doctor-approved users.

Port officials have repeatedly asked the province to build a higher bridge when it replaces the Massey Tunnel to leave more room for taller ships – potentially large LNG tankers – to pass underneath and sail up the lower Fraser River.
