A barge has under run aground along the Victora waterfront tipping over and dumping some of its cargo of crushed cars into the water.
The Ministry of Environment says the bad news is roughly 20 cars ended up in the water.
But the Ministry says the good news is those cars should have no fuel or oil in them as they are cleaned before being loaded up.

That said it adds there is a small slick in the water and booms have been deployed to soak up the pollutants.
The environment ministry is asking Seaspan to hand over a copy of its loading procedures.
The barge operator will also be on the hook for all clean up costs.
An area of the waterfront near the barge has been closed for public safety.
Along with ministry staff, Transport Canada, the Coast Guard and city fire crews all responded.
The barge tipped while being loaded.
No one was hurt.
