National Oceans Protection Plan

Whether facing the Atlantic, Pacific or Arctic oceans, the health and protection of our coasts are critical to our environment, our economy, and to all Canadians.

Trudeau announced a new $1.5-billion plan to protect Canadian waters on all coasts, including more marine vessels, better communication abilities, more safety equipment and new radar stations.

The plan makes no mention of a tanker ban: http://thetyee.ca/News/2016/11/07/No-Tanker-Ban-Trudeau-Plan/
