The MV Canadian Miner, a bulk carrier, was being towed to Turkey to be scrapped. The tow line broke and the ship is wrecked on Scaterie Island, a provincially protected wilderness area in Nova Scotia. The ship poses an environmental and navigational hazard.
The owners simply walked away, the province and the Feds dither over who will clean it up – in the meantime, the ship is breaking up and discharging asbestos, oil and chemicals.
Please consider signing a petition to urge Denis Lebel, the Minister of Transport and Darrell Dexter, Premier of Nova Scotia to take immediate action. We’d appreciate your help in circulating the petition.
