I had always known about the Alberta Terminals Ltd. concrete terminal in Lethbridge, but was suprised to find out that it taken over by Cargill in 1991. The terminal was built in 1931 by the Canadian Grain Commission, and was taken over by Alberta Terminals Ltd. in 1979.
This Agricore-United elevator was originally built in 1974-1975, and is still in operation today.
