A new video from Transport Canada, the Federal agency that watches over Marine traffic to and from the North Coast makes for a good tutorial on the measures in place and the range of agencies which provide coverage of our waters and approaches.
The work of the Coast Guard base in Prince Rupert and the pilots and tugs who board the ships to deliver them to shore is among some of the features of the seven minute overview.

The North Coast presentation is part of a series that explores how the Marine environment on all of Canada's ocean approaches are being protected.
