In Canada, Two Pipeline Spills A Day - - For 37 Years

I put this up on Facebook Sunday night in light of yet another a tar sands oil spill In Alberta, Canada:

A recent Global News investigation found that over the past 37 years, Alberta’s extensive network of pipelines has experienced 28,666 crude oil spills in total, plus another 31,453 spills of a variety of other liquids used in oil and gas production — from salt water to liquid petroleum. That averages out to two crude oil spills a day, every day.
