THE WATERS OF BRITISH COLUMBIA’S SOUTHERN GULF ISLANDS ARE FACING A SERIOUS THREAT!
A major gap in government regulation and oversight is allowing giant international cargo ships to anchor as long as they want in the “protected” waters of the Southern Gulf Islands and Cowichan Bay in British Columbia. The waters around BC’s Southern Gulf Islands are facing a serious environmental threat and time is running out to save them.
