Something has to be done about these ships. It seems Jean Crowder, MP for Nanaimo Cowichan is making an issue of this. You can search youtube for derelict boats in BC and you will find a long list of videos. We have them from the size of a rowboat all the way to one time freighters or even BC Ferries.
I wrote about this in July, very little has happened since. I posted a number of videos of derelict ships in that post
