Christy Clark warns Canada unprepared for tanker oil spills
CBC.ca
If a tanker were to spill oil off the coast of British Columbia today, the federal government would not have the resources to handle a large-scale disaster, warns B.C.
Iloria Phoenix's insight:

Recently in Canada the issue of oil spills has been brought. Premier Christy Clarke warned the country that if an oil spill were to occure off Bitish columbia Canada would not be prepared for it. In the article it informed Canadians that if an oil spill were to occure it would cost them 21.4 billion to clean it up and that 80% of people are opposed to oil tanker traffic This brings up many issues because oil spill's can cause great damages to economies and wild life among the world if not contained.

Canada is worried about our nations failure to compromise a budget . Because out congress failed to pass a spending bill that would continue to fund our government, many government funded programs and places will be shut down. Already the Statue of Liberty is being closed and many Nasa workers are being sent home out of work. The main reasons why Canada are keeping trading at the border and ports as well as economic spillovers. At this point the U.S will really be affected because National parks and museums will shut down causing a drop in tourist income.
Seth Meinders's comment, October 1, 2013 9:48 AM
I think the government needs to come to an agreement on the budget. Does the government really need to shutdown and cause lots of people to be unemployed and cause tourists to not come?Over a budget compromise they are going to shutdown just because they can't get their way. What they aren't telling us is this will cause a great increase in our taxes.
Diana Romero's comment, October 1, 2013 9:56 AM
I agree that the government needs to debate on an agreement, instead of wasting time and money while avoiding discussion of how to improve more than just the money problem. These are historical attractions and shouldn't be shut down.

Two oregon companies are proposing to build liquified natural gas terminals in Oregon. Canada gas would be a primary source for the liquefiers. These projects could possibly profit canadian natural gas producers. By going through with the Oregon companies proposals the canadian producers could make a big profit. both the U.S and Canada can profit by selling the natural gas produced to asian markets.
Seth Meinders's comment, October 1, 2013 9:51 AM
I think we need to follow through with this plan. If we do export this then we can make a profit. This profit can be used in numerous ways to help both the US and Canada.

This was tragic to read, but many tragedies occur everyday and it's sad to think of it. It's also tragic to think of how their family's must feel, but I think our hearts should always be with the ones who died, and to the victims.
Sarah Peterson's comment, October 1, 2013 9:54 AM
I think it's very sad that things like this happen. There needs to be something done so that their aren't any more train crashes because there are so many in the world and many people have died from them. I would think that the world would of figured it out by now that there are problems with train crashes but it doesn't seem like there is anything being done yet.
Iloria Phoenix's comment, October 1, 2013 9:56 AM
Recently in Canada there was a horrible train and bus Crash. In the accident 6 people were killed, 31 people were injured and 11 crash victims were in critical condition. although the Train did hit the Bus all the fatalities and almost all the injuries were from people who were on the bus. The TBs investigater said that it will take a long time to connect the events and reasons leading up to the accidents and that it could take months to complete the investigation.

Recently in Turkey they made a deal missile deal with China to build it's first air defense and anti missile system. The U.S is concerned and alarmed by turkeys decision because they have been allies for years. The U.S also is a alarmed because recently has aided turkey with US-built Patriot missile systems to protect them from incoming attacks from Syria. Even though Turkey said that they are still considering thier decision The U.S is debating on weather Turkey Follows through with their missile system, that it will be nteroperable with our NATO systems .

Basically Turkey has found a reserve of shale gas and they have started operations to extract the gas. To extract the gas they are using hydraulic fracturing. Also a turkish delegate visited the U.S and Canada to seek aid and business colaberation in the extractions. The shale gas reserve when extracted will supply turkeys gas needs for 14 years.
Sarah Peterson's comment, October 1, 2013 9:52 AM
This was interesting. I didn't think that Turkey would ask for our help and I think it's interesting how they asked for the US and Canada's help. We together as a country are friends and help each other out and it's interesting that us together can help other countries out too.
Diana Romero's comment, October 1, 2013 9:54 AM
I agree it is a positive idea that they want to extract it. Most gases are harmful and shouldn't be lurking around a whole country, as harm could be done. The U.S. works with Saudi to gather gas and it is a well aid for Turkey to be equal with most countries and have the same resources available

Even though the U.S has had a huge shale gas boom and is starting to supply more and more of its own gas Canada still thinks that we need there gas. Their reasons for thinking this are logical because the U.S has been reliant on Canadian gas for some years now. Although the U.S and canada are close allies they are now competitors in exporting newly found natural gas. I think that the U.S and Canada will both profit greatly but the U.S has an advantage because the U.S gas is more abundant and cheaper at this point.

Recently a report on a US plane in 1961 nuclear bomb-near miss document was declassified. This document revealed that A four megaton nuclear bomb came very close to exploding over North Carolina in 1961 around the hight of the cold war. This news is alarming because had the Nuclear bomb exploded over U.S territory the course of our history would have been changed. The bomb being 260 times bigger than the ones dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki could have destroyed and done major damage to the south eastern part of the U.S if it had not been for one safety switch.
