Killer whale expert out of work as Ottawa cuts ocean-pollution monitoring positions | News | National Post


"...VICTORIA — Canada’s only marine mammal toxicologist at the Institute of Ocean Sciences on Vancouver Island is losing his job as the federal government cuts almost all employees who monitor ocean pollution across Canada.
Peter Ross, an expert on killer whales and other marine mammals, was the lead author of a report 10 years ago that demonstrated Canada’s killer whales are the most contaminated marine mammals on the planet. He has more than a 100 published reports.
Now, he’s a casualty of the Conservative’s budget cuts, one of 75 people across Canada told this past week his services will no longer be needed because the Department of Fisheries is closing the nation’s contaminants program..."


...definitely Canada going "rouge" in environment issues...! where is the work for all the specialists and why study for...?

...OBVIOUSLY, WHEN YOU ELIMINATE THE ONLY FEW JOBS AGAINST OCEAN CONTAMINATION, AND WATER SPECIES PROTECTION, IT IS BECAUSE the Government is afraid and wrong...! AND WORSE: THEY ARE NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT...!

...these guys have gone "tar sands nuts" and clean up your own "dung" and "piss" and "chemicals" from all Oceans...!

...I THOUGHT Venezuela was the only place you could get a "sewer" going foiled in your best Beach...! WELL NOOO, Vancouver's best downtown beaches are "sewer dumps"...!
