Prestige disaster bad omen for Atlantic Canada

WWF, the conservation organization, warns in a new report launched November 6 that the Prestige oil spill crisis is not over, with both the marine environment and the fishing sector in Spain still suffering from the disaster one year after the tanker sank. At the same time, the Spanish government argues that the affected area is recovering well. The poor response to one of the worst globally televised disasters ever could be bad news for efforts to save Atlantic Canada?s marine environment from further ecological damage.
