As part of its role under the Wrecked, Abandoned or Hazardous Vessel Act, the Canadian Coast Guard has removed and is deconstructing an abandoned vessel.  The M/V Mini Fusion, a 56 metre cargo ship anchored in Doctor Bay, Desolation Sound in British Columbia, has been removed and is currently being deconstructed by Marine Recycling Corporation following a competitive bid process. To minimize the risk to the environment, the vessel was placed on a submersible drydock and the Canadian Coast Guard maintained an on-water presence to monitor the disposition of the vessel during the transit of the MV Mini Fusion to Duncan Bay.  The vessel was previously known as the MV Ocean Lady and at the time was suspected, but not proven, to be employed by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) to transport 76 Tamil migrants to British Columbia in 2009.
