New rules won't stop spills

Media Release, May 13, 2014

Sierra Club Canada Foundation welcomes any improvements in the industry’s handling of oil, but the announcement today won’t prevent more disasters, leaks or spills.

Canadians should note that as the amount of oil transported by truck, train and/or pipeline increases, the number of disasters, leaks and spills will too.
