Cape Breton Post - - FRONT PAGE -

On this date in 1970, a Liberian-reg­is­tered oil tanker ran aground and split in two in Ched­abucto Bay, off Isle Madame, Rich­mond Co., spilling more than 15,000 tonnes of bunker oil. An in­quiry blamed im­proper nav­i­ga­tion by the “Ar­row,” which was head­ing from Venezuela for Cape Bre­ton with 108,000 bar­rels of oil. An­other 20,000 litres of oil was re­moved in Oc­to­ber, 2015.
