The Vancouver Sun recently published an opinion piece submitted by Trevor Heaver and Christoph Rohner  in response to MP Alistair MacGregor’s Private Member’s Bill C-250, seeking to prohibit ships from anchoring in the Southern Gulf Islands.  While recognizing the environmental concerns, the writers point to the need for better management of port logistics to reduce the need for vessels to anchor rather than a ban on anchorages. Greater transparency and collaboration through sharing of data as being piloted under Transport Canada’s Supply Chain Visibility project is a good start.  To learn more about why ships anchor, visit our website page on Anchorages.
