Pending disasters with oil shipments

When was the last time anyone heard of a softwood lumber spill in Alberta that resulted in catastrophic environmental devastation?

Alberta’s Premier needs to consider the following hypothetical headlines and then give her head a shake: “Grain spill cleanup begins in B.C.” and “Oil spill cleanup begins in B.C.” The environmental and the cost implications of these two headlines don’t even begin to compare.

The same can be said for almost any other products shipped through B.C. from Alberta and vice versa.

When was the last time anyone heard of a softwood lumber spill in Alberta that resulted in catastrophic environmental devastation and a multibillion dollar cleanup?
