Plenty of maps, plenty of details of marine life being killed off.
Plenty of data of just how deep, how wide, how long the Bunker C oil was around the West Coast of BC.
Participants in the study was composed of the Federal and Provincial Environment Ministries and the Federal and Provincial Fisheries Ministries.
Back then, there were no Fish Farms like there are today. The north west corner of Vancouver Island has them aplenty now just like we wrote back on April 28, 2012
Or another way to put it...... if there is a spill, and the experts claim that it's only a matter of time, will one spill be enough to stop the flow of tankers between Kitimat and Asia, or will the pubic accept many more, always with the goal being it's more revenue for BC Government's Treasury? More money for Alberta's Treasury? More money for Canada's Treasury?
If that one spill becomes the be all that ends all, what other route will Alberta Oil sands take and then the question has to be asked "Why isn't it being proposed now rather than taking the risk of abusing the pristine shoreline of Beautiful British Columbia first?"

ONE EMERGENCY AND SEVERAL CRISESSource for the above
It seems obvious that this emergency is quite complex. One could literally speak of several crises happening conjointly, or at least several problems, as opposed to viewing the Nestucca as one single emergency. These include the environmental pollution covering 130 km of Canadian coast in spots; the death of about 50,000 ocean birds in Canada and the United States; damage to marine plants, wildlife and the marine ecosystem in general; a public uproar, expressed through a mounting riot atmosphere in some communities, death threats issued against CCG officials and the visit of two federal ministers to calm things down; a legitimacy crisis for the CCG triggered from the public and the media's criticisms and an official blame by a government's official, the CCG changing its on-scene commander during the crisis; the fishermens' difficulties after the closing of six large fishing areas for several weeks; the despair and disgust felt by local residents over a gluey and smelly black substance intruding their home and the feeling of having to have been let down by their government; the pressure and financial burden on the tanker's owners, Sause Brothers, and its insurance company; the tarnishing of the oil industry being, one more time, identified as a polluter; or some international tensions between the United States and Canada over the towing of the Nestucca and errors in information. etc Page 3 of 24
