In December 2017, Environment and Climate Change Canada issued a report on samplings it collected in November from water seeping out of the Picton Terminals’ site into Picton Bay.

A telling quote:  “…That at the Picton Terminals… there occurs a deposit of a deleterious substance in water frequented by fish that is not authorized under the Fisheries Act and/or there is a serious and imminent danger of a deposit of a deleterious substance in water frequented by fish.”

More than one deleterious substance, it turns out.  By the way, deleterious is legal-talk for ‘injurious to health.’

The report isn’t long, but it’s quite alarming.  Especially points 1 and 12 – 14.  Read it here: ECCC 2017 12 PT report
