Canada’s Most Dangerous Diggers

When it comes to hazardous activity near pipelines, British Columbians are Canada’s most Dangerous diggers. That’s according to the National Energy Board in its newly released 2014 annual report.

The NEB says in its newly released annual report that contractors, municipalities and landowners in BC accounted for 58 per cent of all incidents of ‘unauthorized activity’ around NEB-regulated pipelines in Canada in 2014.

Most incidents occur in BC’s population centre, the Lower Mainland.
