Albion Marine is working with the South Asian community to preserve the historical artifact Sea Lion Tugboat, the oldest tugboat in British Columbia, built-in 1905. Sea Lion Tugboat is one of a kind, with a long history — she was hired to escort the Komagata Maru out of Burrard Inlet, sending 376 East Indian Migrants back to an uncertain future. It is a historical artifact for the South Asian community across Canada, specifically in British Columbia, demonstrating the valuable contributions of South Asian Canadians in British Columbia to Canada’s economics, history, and culture.
