Cant blame Canadiens but can sure blame CanGov. Harper regime is ruining this country; and yours!
I hope this makes opposition to the XL Pipeline even stronger and the Obama Government tells Harper where to shove his pipeline!
Don't let him destroy your country and continue to rape ours! Selling our oil at bargain basement prices and not caring about the destruction along the way

"Emergency" ; clean up crew looks like it's on a picnic. Go USA.

"Heavy crude" is tar sands sludge. How much of this spill soaked into the ground?

Other reports state 189,000 gallons spilled. Reporters denied access to site.

"I blame people" Or maybe they could maintain what they have instead of getting everything they want

I blame people who won't allow new lines. Lower the risk. You don't run 60yr old brakes in your car?

So Richard Steiner, which side do you advocate for? Is your company, Oasis Earth really concerned with protecting the earth and people affected by the stupidity of big oil companies?

Saying that, "It just goes to show, people make mistakes" sounds pretty pathetic in this situation! I hope these homeowners haven't hired you as their consultant. You also blame the state regulators. What about EXXON? You fail to mention their culpability!
I guess it all boils down to money. Exxon has it and the "little people" of Arkansas don't!
