Fact-checking the Wilderness Committee narrative about the recent oil spill at the Trans Mountain Sumas Pump Station

Environmental Scientist Blair King takes on the narrative of environmental destruction that organizations like the Wilderness Committee have been pushing over a recent spill at Trans Mountain’s Sumas Pump Station. King notes that these groups have a blatant disregard for information and consistent ignorance.

Here are some key points:

-The oil spill was kept primarily within the containment area.

-There was not any major spills within the last 15 years as claimed, and the spill 15 years ago was at different location kilometres away.

-There is a 20 foot layer of clay between the top-soil and aquifer, providing a large containment layer.

-The Wilderness Committee representative has no formal training or expertise in environmental science.
