So far 4,500 barrels of tar sands have already been recovered…. but no one knows how to stop it from leaking more!
Since May there have been 4 tar sands spills in Cold Lake, Alberta on Beaver Lake Cree First Nation territory. More here.

Their crime? Doing basic air quality tests near the Valero tar sands refinery in Manchester!
Image 3: While scouring East Texas for Anomalies on the KXL, evidence supporting Transcanada’s claim of “state-of- the- art materials and techniques used to construct the Keystone XL pipeline” was found. A crack in the foundation of Transcanada’s lies!
This site pictured here is a valve station, and is part of the highly advanced emergency shutoff system that Transcanada intends to use in case of a pipeline leak. It is frightening to think that this is the foundation of a supposedly high tech system to protect against a Tar Sands spill.
