It was a short appearance for Husky Energy at Lloydminster Provincial Court.
A 19 month joint federal-provincial investigation into the oil spill near Maidstone in July of 2016 which leaked 225-thousand litres of oil into the North Saskatchewan River led to 10 charges.
One is under the provincial Environmental Management and Protection Act, one under the federal Migratory Birds Convention Act and the rest under the federal Fisheries Act.
Husky requested an adjournment to review the charges, so the next court date is June 21st.
The Environment Ministry is to release the inspector’s report on the spill at some point and earlier this week the NDP asked why it hadn’t been yet, saying every day the report isn’t released is another day Saskatchewan people are left in the dark.
