After a minor leak in Burrard Inlet, Barry Penner decided to take matters into his own hands, wading into the front line, taking on the role of head of BC’s Oil Spill Central.
As The Vancouver Sun explains, Barry Penner may not have totally thought this through…
Problem is, the category of minor leaks is so broad, the minister is now receiving personal dispatches every time a drop of petroleum hits the dirt.
“I’ve been getting numerous messages per day from everything from oil seen in a parking lot in Saanich to yesterday a trucker over fueling his tanker truck near Vernon and spilling approximately one litre of diesel in the parking lot and then mopping it up,” Penner said Monday. – Vancouver Sun
I would like to personally apologize to Barry Penner for the canola oil that I spilled in my kitchen last night while making popcorn. I hope it didn’t distract you from important Ministerial things.
