Alberta pipeline oil spills, gas emissions stain Canada's green rep

TORONTO — Three oil spills in a month isn’t the track record Alberta wanted while peddling a major tar sands pipeline to Americans. As many as 400,000 gallons of oil have leaked in three separate incidents from the end of May to the end of June. The spills come as the Alberta and federal governments are lobbying for US approval of the KeystoneXL pipeline, which would transport up to 900,000 more barrels of Alberta’s tar sands oil a day to US refineries in the Gulf of Mexico.
