The Vancouver Observer is reporting that a University of Victoria chemical oceanographer has detected miniscule amounts of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear reactor disaster of the BC coast.[excerpt]
Radiation from the leaking Fukushima nuclear reactor in Japan has been detected on the shores of Vancouver Island.
Scientists say it’s the first time since a tsunami in Japan four years ago that radiation has been found on the shorelines of North America.
Low levels of the radioactive isotope Cesium−134 were collected last February in waters off a dock at Ucluelet, B.C., about 315 kilometres west of Victoria.[source]
