A Picture IS worth a thousand words because it sure looks like a lot of activity on the West Coast:
For instance, Incident Case 2.14 Tyee Princess, moored at Britannia Beach, leaking Oil. CCG officers were dispatched from Sea Island or Ottawa or Prince Rupert or Victoria.
Some of the numbers on the interactive map have been incorrectly linked from a Pacific coast location with the East Coast, but hey the data is one year old. Federal Budget is Balanced.
A click on the Link to Britannia Beach, Howe Sound British Columbia takes you to Port of Baie Comeau, Quebec. Go figure. If you look real close, you'll find anything but Britannia. Maybe we should click on an East Coast Incident and find English Bay (in QUEBEC????)!
|Port of Baie Comeau, Quebec formerly known as Britannia Beach|
Which goes a long way to explain the delay in the CCG arriving 12 hours LATE at English Bay.
