The Vancouver Sun is reporting that cesium 134, an identifier of the Fukushima nuclear disaster was detected on a local beach. The finding was tested by Simon Fraser University. They were surprised by the finding and confirmed it as evidence of ongoing contamination from Fukushima. The sample was collected by a local citizen who took it to the university. The newspaper report did not cite the exact level found in the sample.
Juan Jose Alava from the university mentioned how the burden of monitoring the environment has fallen on academics, non profits and regular citizens as the Canadian government has cut funding. The US has done the same, refusing to conduct monitoring or fund academic research of the issue.
