EnCana exposed, Damning evidence of environmental damage by Amy Steele, March 8, 2007, Fast Forward Weekly
“It’s basically like the wild west. These guys are totally out of control there, and there’s no accountability. “It is a pattern of behaviour. I certainly wouldn’t trust them with my environmentally significant area and I don’t know that Canadians trust them with it either. That’s why we’re saying ‘stay the hell out.’”… In a February 8, 2006 letter obtained by the AWA, CFB Suffield base commander Daniel Drew says oil and gas industry activities on the base “illustrate an apparent lack of respect for the landowner and the lands themselves.” He was referring to an environmental incident report that found that oil and gas companies had abandoned “hazardous material drums and lubricant pails, assorted pipe, plastic tubing, oil rags and frac sand” at well sites. The environmental incident report also recorded an oil spill that contaminated several hundred square metres of soil…“the findings of this rather limited inspection indicate that the oil and gas industry is doing a very poor job of policing its activities” and “the base is not prepared to accept such sub-standard performance.”
