Politicians were out in force today condemning the response to the oil spill in English Bay. Many blamed the closure of the Kitsilano Coast Guard station for what's seen as an inadequate reaction. Mayor Gregor Robertson criticized the provincial and federal governments, while federal Liberal leader Justin Trudeau and Vancouver-Centre MP Hedy Fry weighed in on social media and promised a Liberal government would re-open the coast guard station. Vancouver residents, meanwhile, shared their outrage on Twitter and offered help with the cleanup.
