    BC government is broke, time to salvage the gold and cut inflation! Thatโ€™s not possible with a NDP government.

    Did you spend over 30 years looking for this shipwreck?
    He researched like crazy and heโ€™s search for it and he was going to find it and he did.
    no.. the owner of Rockfish has been looking for it and heโ€™s the one who found it. He was tenacious in his search and refused to give up.

  17. @willli8163 on December 2, 2023 at 8:54 am

    It should all be given to the Canada itโ€™s our history

  18. @undercoverhustler37 on December 2, 2023 at 8:54 am

    They’ll raise the ship then Trudeau will come on national television and address Canadians on how that ship destroyed FAMILIES, eroded trans rights and the salvage companies boat is powered by evil dirty DIESEL!. Once that company salvages that wreck and shares with the world how hostile the government is to work with, there will never be a another salvage company to bother coming here again.

  19. @karljensen2063 on December 2, 2023 at 8:56 am

    Exhibitions?

  20. @qp773 on December 2, 2023 at 8:58 am

    Wouldn’t be surprised if Justin apologizes for Canada wrecking the ship and wants to give $150 million to help them rebuild a replica, plus offers to pay all the interest that the gold could have earned in value, and offers to pay each of the 300+ families a couple million apiece, just so long as they don’t speak ill of Canada, and it being a mean place to ships

  21. @danamclean2430 on December 2, 2023 at 8:58 am

    I don’t think any American company should have the rights to the ship wreck off the Canadian coast. If they want salvage it then a big percentage should go to our Canadian government.

  22. @briancameron5737 on December 2, 2023 at 8:59 am

    The water where the ship is sunk is Canadian waters? The gold should belong to Canada

  23. @MonkeyspankO on December 2, 2023 at 8:59 am

    That’s always cool when they find one of these…lets hope it works out for all stakeholders.
