DARTMOUTH, N.S. – One of the world's most elegant cruise ships, the Queen Elizabeth 2, is being investigated for polluting the waters off Cape Breton.

Transport Canada confirmed Monday that the ship issued a pollution report to the Canadian Coast Guard on Sept. 9, 2005, the day after it dumped 3,000 litres of what the crew described as ``paper pulp" in Canadian waters.

For some reason, the link didn't work. If the charges are substantiated, it won't be pretty for somebody. The Canadian government takes this sort of thing seriously.

That's strange, I just clicked on it and it works fine for me. Try this link:

All say they do. They'll do what is required to make sure someone pays the price.

^ well at least they reported it, instead of just covering up ;) could you imagine the headlines? 'well known cruise line, and world-famous world-traveling ship Queen Elizabeth 2 caught in coverup scandal! polluted Canadian waters and ran! a sail-by shoot, erm, a sail-by-polluting! dusted under the carpet, sought to escape consequences! Details in the afternoon Extra!'
