Barry Dickie, Party President
The premier should realize now isn't the time to lobby for the oil industry and that he should be focusing on what he's going to have the government do to assist in the cleanup and support of communities that have been deeply impacted by the Maidstone oil spill.
Thankfully the City has a secondary water treatment facility. Saskatchewan residents have a right to expect a contingency plan and provincial government funding to aid the other communities relying solely on water treatment plants fed from the North and South Saskatchewan Rivers.
We are sure Husky Energy is doing everything in its power to minimize the impact of this noxious discharge of oil into the river. However, the City of North Battleford's reaction points to an incomplete containment of the spill. We are calling on the Sask Party government to ensure that any and all communities, individuals, farmers and ranchers affected by this spill have ready access to resources devoted to minimize the spill's impacts.
Green Party leader Shawn Setyo said, "With our aging infrastructure, we must start moving the province into the coming new energy sector. We must make sure we do all we can as a province to ensure events like this are eliminated in the future. For now, we join people all across Saskatchewan in hoping there will never be another oil spill to endanger our drinking water.”
