Part of the problem we're seeing, and I think particularly on the west coast—and perhaps my colleague Ms. Malcolmson will address it a little bit more—is that the west coast seems to have a lot more recreational vessels that are left abandoned, whereas on the east coast, it's bigger, container ship-type things that we're dealing with.
I'm happy to hear that you're onside with the legislation and that you think it's a good step forward. Thank you for being here today.
I'll go to Mr. White. Thank you so much for your presentation, and for your hard work on this issue. Of course, thanks also to Captain Bender for everything he has done. I guess, maybe, both of you can answer this question for me.
I support what you're trying to do. I totally understand the need to protect these ships that sank during war, and the graves. I question that this would be the right place to have that, and if this legislation is where that should be. Can you tell me why you think this legislation is an appropriate place to put what you're asking for?
