The Council of Canadians Regina chapter has called for the release of inspection reports given an oil spill in Saskatchewan late last week.
On Friday (January 20) a pipeline leaked about 200,000 litres (about 1,400 barrels) of crude oil on the territory of the Ocean Man First Nation, which is located about 140 kilometres southeast of Regina.
The Regina Leader Post reports, "The province says an actual source of the leak will not be known until the site is excavated and the break location confirmed." Reuters adds, "It was not immediately clear how the current incident happened or which company owns the underground pipeline that leaked the oil." Other news reports suggest the pipeline is owned by Tundra Energy Marketing.
This pipeline spill follows the 225,000 litre Husky Oil spill in July 2016.
