Canadian, U.S Coast Guards practice working together in case of cross border oil spill -CHEK


This is an ongoing story of both countries working cooperatively to prepare for a possible spill. It’s not a panacea, but some protection.

Adequate oil spill response is paramount to maintain the health of the oceans. That’s why both the U.S and Canadian Coast guard, along with their spill response partners, were practising their joint response during a two-day simulated drill. They started in Port Angeles on Wednesday and then on Thursday, they were in the Strait of Juan de Fuca…. More than 5,000 deep sea vessels travel through the Salish Sea in designated shipping lanes each year on both sides of the border. Luisa Alvarez reports. (CHEK)
