Yup. It's awful. The basic, obvious lesson of Exxon Valdez was this: Don't drive drunk.....how well did we learn tha one, Newfoundland?! Bwa ha ha ha ....but I digress. The chances of an event happening here, as the result of a similar selfish incompetence and abject stupidity, is extremely high. And a response from Newfoundland and Canadian "authorities"?!? Well, let's not delude ourselves....it will quite predictably be FAR too little, MUCH too late (if at all), and a complete clusterfark of incompetence.

For years now Transport Canada has said that Placentia Bay was the mostly likely place for a major spill. And only a few year back TC did another marine risk report saying that the outer approaches to the Bay (50 miles off from Cape race to the Burn Peninsula) had an equivalent high risk. NOw (just recently) they say off Cape Breton area is the highest risk. What changed?

I would say what changed is that the Come by Chance refinery will soon close.

The Exxon Valdez is the story of an irresponsible drunk at the wheel. And with that, analyse away, Newfoundlanders.
