Husky fined $3.8M for leak into North Saskatchewan River

Husky Energy has been fined $3.8 million for a pipeline leak that spilled oil into a major river and tainted the drinking water supply for thousands of people in Saskatchewan. The spill into the North Saskatchewan River in July 2016 forced the cities of North Battleford, Prince Albert and Melfort to shut off their water intakes for almost two months. The Calgary-based company pleaded guilty Wednesday in provincial court in Lloydminster, Sask., to three environmental charges.
