US spill sparks concerns in Canada

BP disaster in Gulf of Mexico casts doubts over Canada's new deepwater exploration.

    The fallout from the US oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico has rippled across the border to Canada.

    Exploration is under way close to Canada's most eastern province to drill a well that would be more than a kilometre deeper than BP's Deepwater Horizon rig that exploded in April.

    But concerns are mounting over whether the Canadian oil exploration should continue.
