Statement from Saskatchewan NDP Leader Trent Wotherspoon on the Husky Energy oil spill

“On behalf of all New Democrats across Saskatchewan, the Official Opposition, and Prince Albert Northcote MLA Nicole Rancourt, my thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by the Husky Energy oil spill.

“All of the communities are understandably and rightfully concerned. As the clean-up continues and consequences become known, we call on the company and the government to be fully open and transparent.
 
“Right now, our priority - and that of the affected communities - is ensuring safe drinking water and getting this spill cleaned up.
 
“There will be time in the coming days to discuss liability, accountability and the need for proper government oversight, inspections and protections but that conversation is secondary to what should be everyone’s main priority - ensuring safe drinking water for all affected communities and the clean-up of what is still out there.
 
“We will continue to keep in contact with communities and officials and assist in whatever way we can.”
