Blaney calls for action in wake of oil spill

The Member of Parliament for North Island-Powell River is questioning the response to a diesel spill near the northern tip of Vancouver Island.

Approximately 1500 litres of diesel spilled from the Burdwood Fish Farm on Sunday.

Rachel Blaney says the spill north-east of Port McNeill could have major effects on the area’s ecosystem and the surrounding community. Blaney says many questions remain unanswered as the area recovers from the spill.
