Abandoned Boats

/ 97.3 The Eagle
              Transport Canada says 1.3 million dollars is being made available to help coastal communities clear out abandoned vessels. The funding will go toward assessing and removing abandoned boats from ports and harbours in British Columbia and Newfoundland and Labrador, as well as to an education campaign. At least 21 vessels are slated to be removed from a number of harbours including those in Ladysmith, Vancouver and Victoria. The funding will also support research into environmentally friendly ways to recycle and dispose of boats.
