Chris Krepski says a safety board team is going to investigate at the terminal, which is 50 kilometres north of Vancouver.

Krepski says the vessel, the Kai Xuan from Korea, apparently ran aground Monday morning.

He says they aren't sure what caused the grounding or what the ship was carrying, but it doesn't appear to pose any danger to the environment.

Dan Bate, with the Canadian Coast Guard, says the guard wasn't called out to respond because there was no concern the incident had caused any pollution.
