The Vancouver suburb of Burnaby is recovering from an Exxon Valdez-sized disaster and my co-workers are having to deal with giant globs of oil on their roofs. I thought this sort of thing only happened on isolated Alaskan coastlines to defenseless birds. Who knew us city slickers could get hit by something like this?
I didn’t even know there were oil pipelines running through the suburbs. The black gooey mess arrived with perfect timing, just as Vancouver is dealing with a garbage strike.
This summer just keeps getting better and better.
