Crews working to contain Alberta pipeline spill
Crews were scrambling to contain a pipeline leak in Alberta that may have spilled as much as 475,000 liters of crude oil into a tributary of the Red Deer River. This is not good. Don't, they have shut off valves within the pipeline? Not a good omen for the new pipeline to the coast. Surely they can build a pipeline with shut off valves every once and a while so they can stop the spill if the pipeline breaks. This is just irresponsible.
Evidently there was another large pipeline spill in Alberta last year.
