When the jet fuel spill happened in Lemon Creek on July 26, 2013, it could have been a good opportunity for Mary Polak to show how we as citizens can rely on our government agencies, like the Ministry of Environment, to look out for us in the event of an emergency, or to ensure there would be some sort of meaningful remediation and accountability.
However, it took her six weeks to come and take a look.
Why tell us that there will be no compensation when the parties responsible are Executive Flight Centre and Ministry of Forests?
EFC tells us the accident was caused by bad directions and MOF — who gave the directions — claims not to have ordered the fuel.
If Transport Canada investigated the crash, shouldn’t they investigate the comments as well, or is that something the police should handle? If there’s no criminal investigation in a case like this, then there’s no need for big business to behave responsibly.
