Our government should be at least partially  held to account for this disaster, since ‘warning’ their pals and probably, political donors, is not terribly effective…and now we have this to deal with..
This is the same bunch who think that a pipeline is a great idea..if they can’t even control one mining company, how could they even fantasize about the sort of emergency inherent in pipeline/oil tanker traffic on our coast? Are you kidding me? Watch all the bobbing and weaving that will now occur regarding this tailings release into our waterways..it will be played down by the company, and the government? Will do squat..
