MP Malcolmson: When will Trudeau stand up for coastal communities?

Today in the House of Commons, MP Sheila Malcolmson stood and demanded the Liberals to listen to coastal communities and adopt her legislation.

“Oil spills and marine debris from thousands of abandoned vessels pollute our waterways and put local fishing and tourism jobs in at risk. After years of neglect, the Trudeau government won’t commit the resources needed to deal with the backlog of abandoned boats. Coastal communities can’t wait any longer for legislation to fix abandoned vessels. This week, Union of BC Municipalities will vote on a resolution urging Trudeau government to adopt my legislation to solve the problem of abandoned vessels. When will this government finally listen to the coastal communities? And will they support my legislation to clean our coasts?”

Coastal communities have been sounding the alarm for decades, but only Sheila Malcolmson and New Democrats have legislation ready to fix vessel registration, pilot a vessel turn-in program, create good green jobs by supporting local marine salvage businesses and vessel recycling, and make Coast Guard responsible for directing the removal of abandoned vessels
