Sarosha Stockton — who runs the website kootenayangler.com — posted the five-minute video on Saturday. Stockton shows viewers some of the impacts the fuel has had on the Slocan River.

“It’s a terrible day for the Slocan River,” he says.

Stockton shows some of the small dead fish washed up on shore and some of the discoloured and contaminated water along the banks of the Slocan River.

“Fish are dying and there’s the proof,” he says pointing at several small fish.
