The McBarge (AKA The McDerelict) is a floating McDonald’s restaurant that was built for the 1986 World’s Fair in Vancouver. There have been proposals to turn it into a paddlewheeler or a homeless shelter, but for now it rusts away in Burrard Inlet

I was a McManager in the 90’s in Canada where most of my training took place in Vancouver, BC. The mucky mucks at HQ told us stories about that floating McD’s. If memory serves, the reason it never became operational again after Expo 86 is because of pissy politicians. Nobody would grant McD’s permission to dock the thing and get utility services (water, power, sewer) from the mainland. I can’t remember the whys, but it sounded like it was a big pissing contest.
