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.
There is no way they can do a proper job of enforcing safety and environmental regulations because they rely largely on self-reporting by companies.

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.

We also encourage people to sign the petition athttps://www.change.org/p/government-of-saskatchewan-prevent-another-major-pipeline-leak-in-saskatchewan

For more information, we also recommend people read Emily Eaton's 'Field Notes' blog on the topic: http://www.saskoil.org/fieldnotes/2016/7/25/the-husky-oil-spill-just-one-of-18000
