Sunken Canadian Ship Polluting Alaskan Coast

Thursday, February 25, 2010

According to a Feb. 24 report from The Gazette, a sunken Canadian steamship that offered luxury cruises for decades along the British Columbia coast, then served a crucial role during the Second World War transporting troops, supplies and Jewish refugees, is now polluting the waters of a major Pacific Ocean inlet. The Princess Kathleen, a Canadian Pacific cruise ship sank in a storm off southeast Alaska nearly 60 years ago and has been identified as the source of a persistent oil slick in waters north of Juneau after U.S. Coast Guard officials dived to the wreck site last week.
