And; as the beach head community for hundreds of annual moorings, James Bay bears the brunt of environmental effects caused by titanic cruise ships, and the burden of massively increased traffic flow through its mainly residential streets. Dr. Brian Scarf is professor of Economics here at the University of Victoria, and is the lead author of a 70-plus page report facilitated by the James Bay Neighbourhood Association, titled, ‘Victoria as a Port-of-Call: the Costs and Benefits of Cruise Ship Visits.’
