As we set sail with a new government, it’s critical that ocean protection is a department priority for Transport Minister Omar Alghabra. And that starts with strengthening ship waste dumping regulations.
As regulations stand currently, what Canada considers to be “treated” ship waste is 18 times more polluted than what Alaska allows. Meanwhile, Washington State doesn’t let any sewage, treated or not, get dumped in the Salish Sea.
Meaning ships need to hold whatever gets flushed on board until they can dump it on us.
