‘Inevitable’ 9.0 earthquake, tsunami will hit Canada’s West Coast: expert

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4W2i...ature=emb_logo



The threat of the “big one” hitting Western Canada has been looming for years. Experts say a powerful magnitude 9.0 earthquake could rip through the Pacific Coast, killings thousands and causing tsunami waves up to 20 metres high.

Well fukk, there goes my vacation plans for next month, just hope Trudeau catches a wave.

Some would say a Trump or Trudeau thread is doom and gloom, just trying to shift gears a bit.

Me too. Every couple of years they drag this old bone out to scare everyone into buying a bunch more emergency supplies and make building more expensive.. The worst we ever had was in the 60s when part of Pt Alberni got washed.

A Tsunami Tax to combat man-made Tusanamis is completely in order

That was Global Warming and had we a carbon tax at the time, Port Alberni would have been spared

Was snarkily thinking along the same lines, pete. No great loss to the ROP. Once it happens, we in the Interior can make a good claim for moving the legislature to Kamloops - where it should have been all along - rightly citing the fact that the coast isn't the safest place for our seat of government.


I would feel bad for those poor right-thinking souls marooned among the sea of lefties who will be adversely affected.

Apparently a good wave requires lots of distance to build, so a shaker close to the coast probably won't cause a lot of flooding and one in the gulf doesn't have the distance to build a good wave. Could liquefy the mus flats Richmond is built on.

I moved from there . I think we probably have greater danger from Mount Baker blowing her top . She is about due .
