Regulate the ship breaking industry.


Ship breaking involves dismantling and recycling ships, which is one of the most hazardous and environmentally damaging industries on the planet. The province has permitted the ship breaking industry to operate in Baynes Sound, which is a federally designated ecologically & biologically sensitive area that produces half of British Columbia’s shellfish. There are no specific regulations regarding ship breaking in B.C., despite it posing a serious risk to workers, communities, and marine environments.
