Abstract

We present an analysis of the detectability of faint tidal features in galaxies from the wide-field component of the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope Legacy Survey. Our sample consists of 1781 luminous (M_{r^\prime }1010.5 M ⊙, and red galaxies are twice as likely to show tidal features than are blue galaxies.
