Little danger to B.C. from Japanese radiation, officials say
There is no risk to B.C. from leaking Japanese nuclear reactors "at the present time," according to a statement released Sunday afternoon by provincial Minister of Public Safety Rich Coleman.
"Health Canada has advised us that at the present time the current radiological activity at a facility in Japan is expected to pose no health risk to British Columbians," said Coleman.
Coleman added that Ottawa "is monitoring and assessing the situation at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan following reports of an explosion, in order to assess any potential risks to Canadians."
Michael Brauer, a professor in the School of Environmental Health at the University of B.C., said in an email that "from what we know now, the risk for B.C. is very low."
"Any radiation that was released into the air will take about five days to reach North America and by that time much of the radiation will have dispersed and the radioactivity of one form [iodine 131] will have decayed substantially," said Brauer.
"Although it is hard to forecast this far in advance, the current wind patterns suggest that air masses from Japan will travel northeast and pass well north of B.C.," he said.

Why are people so anti-Japanese suddenly? I had not idea there was a problem with people who don't like the Japanese? Maybe some old Bigots who never got over WW2?
