A great success story for BC and Howe Sound with a big thanks to our friends at CTV news. In this followup story to the previous two already done by CTV news and echoed here Peter Grainger explains how the actions of the past few months have led Federal investigators to start digging into the way old ships are disposed of along the BC shoreline.

The Queen of Saanich arrived at Anvil Island in December, and Scott Henshaw of the Future of Howe Sound Society says he was shocked and saddened the first time he saw it. The ship is held in place by two-inch-thick ropes, which Henshaw believes are corroding in the salt water and aren’t strong enough to hold a vessel of this size.

A decommissioned ferry in B.C. has become party central, and area residents are growing concerned. CTV's Peter Grainger reports.
