BC marine industry salutes health care workers

Vancouver, BC – Ships all along the coast of British Columbia will sound their horns at 7 pm today in solidarity with the movement to thank health care workers in the province who are on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic

“This audible celebration of health care workers by the marine shipping industry is noteworthy, as the essential marine transportation workforce also continues to support the movement of critical cargo, some of which directly supports medical efforts, and ensures the delivery of supplies that keep our communities functioning,” said the Vancouver-based Chamber of Shipping.

This marine workforce includes longshoreman, terminal operators, tug operators, seafarers from Canada and all over the world, marine pilots, port staff, and professional mariners, vessel traffic controllers, and inspectors from Transport Canada, the Canadian Coast Guard, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, and the Canada Border Services Agency. With the current threat of COVID-19, their workplace challenges are immense, and they are working collaboratively to find innovative and safe ways to keep ships and cargo moving.
