Port Metro Vancouver launches new online entertainment channel

Dec 19 2017, 11:05 am

In an effort to educate more people about Port Metro Vancouver and the role it plays in BC, Port Metro has launched a new online entertainment channel, featuring two different web-series.

The channel, titled PortTV, plays host to People of the Port and Port Pop Quiz, with new episodes airing every Tuesday from June until September.

People of the Port takes audiences behind-the-scenes of the roles those working within Port Metro Vancouver’s community take on each and every day. Hosted by Denise Jones, viewers will have the chance to experience everything from surveying bird populations in Boundary Bay and loading the biggest supply of wood pulp to be exported in B.C.’s history, to learning about the rehabilitation of injured marine mammals and helping out the port’s Harbour Patrol Crew.

Port Pop Quiz on the other hand, follows host David Milchard as he ventures in to six port communities to quiz peoples’ knowledge of Port Metro Vancouver in a roving game-show style (à la Cash Cab).  Tests of knowledge on all things related to the port, physical challenges, and even song-writing are all on the table as the show visits Vancouver, Delta, Richmond, New Westminster, Surrey and North Vancouver.

Viewers will also get the chance to get in on the action and play Port Pop Quiz themselves, as an online contest will kick off on June 18. For four weeks, trivia questions will be released every Wednesday on Port Metro Vancouver’s Facebook page, with the opportunity to win weekly prizes.
