VANCOUVER - Striking truckers at Canada's largest port have a reached a deal to end a prolonged strike that officials said threatened the country's economy.

British Columbia Premier Christy Clark said Wednesday the port will be open for business Thursday.

British Columbia introduced back-to-work legislation earlier this week that would have affected the unionized workers.

The dispute left hundreds of millions of dollars worth of cargo stranded at Vancouver-area container terminals.

It largely focused on issues related to pay, including rates, unpaid time spent at the port waiting for cargo, and allegations of undercutting within the industry.

Clark and Prime Minister Stephen Harper both warned the dispute was jeopardizing the economy.
