Environmental Incidents in Northeastern Alberta’s Bitumen Sands Region, 1996-2012

(2013-07-23) This new study, authored by Dr. Kevin Timoney and Peter Lee, found that environmental violations in Alberta's bitumen sands region are frequent, enforcement is rare, record keeping is dysfunctional, and there is a chronic failure to disclose important environmental incident information to the public. 

The dataset of incident records is available in our Data Warehouse (see link under "Related Stories" below).

Comments on the report are welcome in an online Discussion Forum.
