The Husky Energy pipeline leak into the North Saskatchewan River was preventable.
Because of cuts made by the current government, Saskatchewan’s regulators are extremely under-staffed.

We are holding a rally in front of the Saskatchewan Legislature in Regina on Saturday July 30 at 4 PM to demand that the Government Of Saskatchewan dramatically increase staffing of regulatory agencies and conduct routine pipeline inspections that are independent of the companies involved.
