The South Coast Ship Watch Alliance

The South Coast Ship Watch Alliance is a coalition of community groups in the Southern Gulf Islands, Cowichan Bay,
Ladysmith and Saltair. Environmentalists, concerned citizens, home owners and residents with a purpose to sound
the alarm about bulk freighters anchoring in local waterways and the many negative impacts they are having on
our environment, our homes and our communities.

Mission is to push government, industry and the Port of Vancouver to find solutions that will stop the use of
Southern Gulf Island waterways as a free parking lot for bulk freighters bound for Vancouver terminals.
