When Marine Atlantic sold The Joseph and Clara Smallwood and The Caribou were sold to two separate companies some years ago, a condition of the sales included a commitment that if a buyer decide to recycle the vessels, it would be done at a yard with green recycling facilities. It is being revealed that both boats are now in Alang, India, at one of most infamous ship-breaking facilities in the world. According the United Nations Human Rights Council, 209 workers were killed in accidents in Alang between 1996 and 2003. A ship-breakers watchdog group in New Delhi, India, told CBC News Tuesday that at least 27 workers have been killed this year in Alang.
