This Week in the Herald

This week I talk about the Alam Sayang, a ship that lost power in Canadian Waters off BC. This Case is problematic for a few reasons:
1. we first heard about it from the Americans.
2.both Canadian ETV’s were dispatched, but didn’t really do anything
3.the American ETV did – likely in contravention of our Cabotage Laws
4. The USCG and Washington state Department of Ecology were able to tell me what they knew within a couple of hours of me asking on Thursday. it Took DFO 24 hours to acknowledge my request, and a full answer was provided late Monday

the ETV’s also dont meet the requirements as set out in the RFP the CITT has found, after Hieltsuk Horizon Maritime Services complained. the procurement is currently under review.

About Halifax Shipping News

Halifax Shipping News began in 2008 as a blog called The Armchair Captain. The idea behind it came when I would become curious about the comings and goings in the harbour, and research to find their source. I figured if I was wondering, others would be as well, and so I would blog about them. 5+ years later, here we are. This blog is written by Peter Ziobrowski. Peter is a Senior IT System Architect, and holds a BA in the History & Theory of Architecture,as well as diplomas in Computer System Technology and Information System Security. His personal site can be found at http://www.ziobrowski.net. Peter is available for media interviews on local Maritime issues. He also holds a large collection of photos of shipping subjects from Halifax suitable for publication. You can contact him directly via email at peter@halifaxshippingnews.ca.
