Special comments:

Due to the lack of a central Coastal Zone Management Authority in British Columbia, it is not yet possible to assign meaningful ratings to British Columbia's coastal management efforts. If and when more information becomes available as to the status and effectiveness of coastal management efforts in British Columbia, ratings will be assigned as appropriate.
