Received this email from a landowner today. Also, CCOBS have been working on their website and have added a lot of new information. Check it out. https://concernedcitizensofbaynessoundorg.wordpress.com/
I LIVE HERE- SAVE THE CHILDREN, FAMILIES, ENVIRONMENT and BAYNES SOUND!
Several vessels have been dragged ashore and dismantled on this site. BC Environment has issued (3) Warnings and (1) Advisory to the Operator for unauthorized releases of waste. Raw sewage and heavy metals like cadmium, lead, zinc and copper were being discharged into the marine environment. Further, there was a petroleum spill from one of two American NOASS vessels in the foreshore. The Canadian Coast Guard was called in, and confirmed the leakage, saying that the “source is land-based from a former vessel (NOASS Miller Freeman) that is currently being pulled further up the shoreline to be deconstructed.
This is a true depiction of how close children are living to this hazardous waste site!
ALL ASBESTOS ON THE VESSEL HAS BEEN VERIFIED AS NON-FRIABLE (BONDED OR OTHERWISE RENDERED UNAVAILABLE FOR RELEASE INTO THE ATMOSPHERE THROUGH NORMAL USAGE). DO NOT RELEASE FIBERS BY CUTTING, CRUSHING, SANDING, DISASSEMBLING, OR OTHERWISE ALTERING THIS PROPERTY.
