Everyone except the Coast Guard knew it was just a matter of time before this would happen. I suspect the Coast Guard did so little to prevent this mess because it is easier to let the oil escape than to try preventing it from doing so. I pity the people who might have reason to depend on the Coast Guard that seems unable to do anything but sit back and watch things unfold. Not much energy or effort required to do that.

This is what they have been waiting for, they want the oil to leak out and wash on our beaches and oil up a few thousand sea birds. They will monitor the situation and hope that the oil will drift away. This is not Ontario or any other province in Canada, this is Newfoundland , we don't matter or environment doesn't matter our fish or seabirds doesn't matter. Would this happen in Quebec or Ontario or any other province, I think not.

B.C. doesn't care either - the pipeline will probably be coming to mess up our pristine coastline.

1985...hunh. Funny how concern for the wonderful Newfoundland environment seems to have only been around since the word "fracking" was coined.
