BC Environment Minister Barry Penner briefed reporters on the response to the Queen of the North spill earlier today. He was heard on CBC Vancouver radio news to say that aerial surveillance of the spill scene by the response partners was continuing. Containment booms were being deployed, although the light diesel oil was proving difficult to recover. He also said that the slick was abating, that the rate at which oil was spilling out of the wreck was slowing, and that so far there was no evidence of dead birds or other wildlife.
