“A tug boat that ran aground near Bella Bella loaded with 59,924 gallons of diesel fuel has reignited calls to ban tanker traffic in B.C. waters.

The Nathan E. Stewart was pushing the empty fuel barge, DBL 55, owned by the U.S. company Kirby Offshore Marine, when it ran aground on Edge Reef near Athlone Island early Thursday morning, spilling diesel fuel into the marine ecosystem.” Thursday Oct 13th, 2016. CBC
