"In January, the federal government tested the ship for hazardous materials and an Environment Canada report found it contained toxins known as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) at almost eight times the legal limit. The Canadian Environmental Protection Act sets the acceptable limits as 50 parts per million. The report shows that in some areas of the ship, the PCBs were as high as 377 parts per million.
In response to the findings, the federal government in June paid contractor Jenkins Marine Ltd. $865,000 to remove PCBs from the Annapolis, but results of the ship's final inspection were not released to the public."
