On April 8th the news media began reporting that there was an oil spill in English Bay, not far from my home: Bowen Island. Ten days later the Globe And Mail published an article that details the slow and ineffectual official response to this event, near Vancouver, and in the sensitive ecosystem of the Salish Sea.

Looking at vesselfinder.com, I see that the ship that perpetrated the spill, the Marathassa, is still at anchor close to Vancouver’s beaches.
