Heiltsuk First Nation releases its investigation report into the sinking of the Nathan E. Stewart


Heiltsuk First Nation has released its Investigation Report into the first 48 hours of the Nathan E. Stewart oil spill.

The 75-page Investigation Report sets out a chronology of the first 48 hours after the American tug-barge missed at least one course correction and ran aground, spilling more than 110-thousand litres of diesel into an important Heiltsuk food harvesting and cultural site in Gale Passage on October 13, 2016.
