Fatal Sinking, Five Dead–Response Delayed?

cp-bc-boat-sinking

CBC British Columbia is reporting the sinking of a whale watching tour boat that resulted in at least five deaths. Weather does not appear to have been the problem. There are reports that the Canadian Coast Guard response may have been delayed as a result of a fault in a recently remoted radio receiver.

Thanks to our Canadian friend Ken for bringing this to my attention.
