Break the Chains

BC’s Southern Gulf Islands face a serious environmental threat. Act now to help save them.

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.

Negative Impacts include:

  • Anchor chains scouring the ocean floor, destroying marine habitat
  • Diesel generators run 24/7 causing air, noise and light pollution
  • Acoustic Interference and collision risk to Resident Killer Whales
  • Risk of grounding or collisions causing catastrophic fuel spills

Local First Nations and coastal community groups are demanding Transport Canada put an end to this harmful spillover of commercial activity from the Port of Vancouver.

Take Action Today!

Tell Transport Minister Marc Garneau and the federal cabinet to stop putting the interests of foreign shippers ahead of the environment and coastal communities.
