BC senior Tory cabinet minister James Moore isn’t pleased with some of the political finger-pointing that’s erupted today in light of the fuel spill in English Bay.
“To have people with only a half or a quarter of the information coming before the media and asserting with certainty exactly what happened and why it happened and why the response could have been different, should have been different when they frankly don’t know, because it’s an evolving situation, I think is unhelpful.”
So far today Vancouver’s mayor has hammered senior levels of government, citing inadequate response and lack of information.
Premier Christy Clark has suggested the mayor didn’t fully understand the integrated response that did occur.
And then she went on to say the Coast Guard’s failure to quickly contain the spill is proof the federal government does not have a ‘world class’ response system in place.
