17 miles out on a lee shore and the tug from Rupert won't arrive until tomorrow morning!   This could be bad.  400 tons of bunker fuel on board.    Let's hope the ready response of tugs improves a lot before the super oil tankers out of Kitimat have a similar problem.

There was no way this ship was going to hit shore, They caught it well in time. It's just a news story that creates drama for the news viewers.
