The Lubicon Lake Nation is actively responding to an oil spill that has leaked 4.5 million litres of oil onto their lands. A Plains Midstream Canada pipeline began leaking oil onto the Peace River watershed on Thursday and crews are now working to clean it up. The spill occurred on the traditional territory of the Lubicon Lake Nation and near lands set aside for the Nation's future reserve, which the pipeline runs through. These lands were intended to be protected from oil and gas development according to Provincial government officials. Chief Bernard Ominayak and Council met with officials from Plains Midstream Canada yesterday morning and have been in close contact with the Energy Resources Conservation Board to manage the environmental disaster. The Chief and Council are currently assessing the community's needs and would welcome any assistance from willing medical professionals and environment experts and invite them to contact the Lubicon Lake Nation band office.
