What to do with the MV Sun Sea

518 MV Sun Sea

 

The federal government is trying to figure out what to do with the MV Sun Sea, and has issued a Request for Information (RFI).  Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) is requesting Industry feedback regarding potential options for the vessel, which has been in the custody of the Canada Border Services Agency since 2010.  The government is interested in obtaining input on alternative disposal methods that are environmentally sound and lower costs to Canada Taxpayers.  The MV Sun Sea was carrying 492 Sri Lankan Tamils when it was intercepted off the coast of British Columbia on August 12, 2010.  It is currently moored at a facility on the Fraser River in Delta, BC.
