The removal of Viki Lyne II from Ladysmith Harbour gets underway

The abandoned and decaying Viki Lyne II is currently being removed from Ladysmith Harbour as part of the execution of a contract tendered by Fisheries and Oceans Canada, and it will be dismantled in the following weeks.

“We are pleased to see the federal government prioritizing the marine environment not only by removing this derelict boat, but also for its current efforts to develop a strategy to address the risks from abandoned, derelict and wrecked vessels all along our coastline,” says Christianne Wilhelmson, Executive Director of Georgia Strait Alliance.
