with the Transportation Safety Board of Canada

A team of investigators from the Transportation Safety Board of Canada will be arriving in Prince Rupert in the days to come, that as a staging area for their investigation into the sinking of the Passenger Vessel Island Bay earlier this month off of Carpenter Bay on Haida Gwaii.

As we outlined on September 13th, the vessel which was a tour boat operating along Moresby Island sank sparking an environmental response from the Canadian Coast Guard, West Coast Marine Response Corporation and the Council of the Haida Nation.

In their statement from Wednesday, the TSB of Canada doesn't expand much on what their investigation will include,  other than to say that they will be gathering information and assessing the occurrence.

No timeline towards when they anticipate  delivering their findings was provided as part of their statement.
