World Class Cleanup

Joe Oliver, Canada’s minister of natural resources, promises a world class oil cleanup scheme. What does world class mean? It mean recovering about 15% of the oil and sticking governments with the bill. A Liberian freighter run by a company that on paper owns only one ship can’t very well be held liable. We need to hold the companies that own the oil liable. After all, they choose the ships.
