A boat sank off the coast of British Columbia in 2016 and spilled 110,000 liters of heavy oils and fuel that washed up along the coast of Indigenous Lands. The Indigenous community used to harvest 25 marine species, but they are not been able to harvest any since the fuel and oil spill.
The Texas-based company that owned the ship was fined $3 million but was not required to do an impact assessment.
Find out more about the issue by listening to the episode.
