The North Vancouver RCMP Traffic Services and ICBC recently hosted the 6th annual Project Wave, a joint operation providing educational opportunities to the public on boating safety and operating requirements. We’d like to extend a big thank you to the Vancouver Port Authority, BC Conservation, Marine Search and Rescue, District of North Vancouver Fire and Rescue, Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue Station 2, and the Integrated First Nations Unit (IFNU) for your participation and support. The event took place at Whey-ah-Wichen (Cates Park) and featured vessel compliance checks at various checkpoints in the Indian Arm area, public education stations at Whey-ah-Wichen, and the famous ICBC Crashed Car display.
