The Council of the Haida Nation, Canadian Coast Guard, BC Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy and Taan Forest were the Unified Command who oversaw the Foss 153 Diesel Spill Diinan Kahlii Dinan Bay, Haida Gwaii. As a result of the sampling outcomes and planned long-term monitoring of the spill site, Unified Command has stood down, ending the formal incident response.
