You do no it’s from an 80 tonne spill,
Lol the dangerous good ferry ships more oil to the island then that on a daily bases.
To put it in perspective a tanker truck with trailer carry’s 40 tones
So your right that has and will happen here
A Vancouver Island company is sending employees to work on this spill actually.
Not to say it would not be devastating, everyone knows about the english bay spill and that was only from a 2-3 tonne spill 2700L
I think I read somewhere that a cargo ship can burn up to 1 tonne of fuel in an hour
Things are going to change one way or another.
more info can be found here

It has a similar story as to no one stepping up to take resposibility for the clean up costs and it has sat on the reefs since Feb 5.
The problem is these ships are registered under international companies and flags, all one has to do is register the ship under a different flag and change the name.
It’s a shitty world
Here's an update on the delayed and still continuing impacts from the Deepwater Horizon spill:
USF researchers tested 2,500 fish 10 years after Deepwater Horizon. There was oil in all of them
UPDATE: Diesel spill reported in Haida Gwaii waters near Dinan Bay
