Oil spill cleanup continues

It has been two weeks since a barge spewed alomst 30-thousand litres of bunker fuel into Howe Sound near Squamish causing an environmental nightmare.

But it appears the company involved is doing all it can to clean it up.
While the clean up continues, Environment Minister Barry Penner says the cost, which will be picked up by the company that owns the barge, has already reached tens of thousands of dollars, and is expected to grow significantly, I’ve asked staff to keep all their receipts and tabulate a bill that we can send off to the shipping company.
