Various organizations; EMERGBC, IPREM, Metro Vancouver, etc. are staffed by really smart people but they are academics. As this article so clearly points out for the umpteenth time, they work in silos.
It took them 8 hours to respond to the small oil spill in the Vancouver inner harbour. They people work in silos.

Dear followers, I will start blogging daily soon so stay tuned for new articles.
