Debris from the Japanese tsunami disaster in 2011 is still washing ashore on B-C's coast. Wednesday marks the four-year anniversary of the tragedy that claimed almost 16-thousand lives. Kate Le Souef (le-soo-EFF') of the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup says she still sees Japanese items such as wood and fishing gear collecting along the B-C shoreline. Le Souef says while debris from disasters can't be prevented, we can do something about household waste winding up in the ocean. (Le Souef says she hopes one legacy of the Japanese tragedy is a greater awareness of what gets discarded into the ocean.)
