Davis Associate Colin Lipsett appeared on Alberta Primetime to discuss the growing problem of contaminated gas stations in the province of Alberta. At present, hundreds of derelict gas station sites scar the Alberta landscape as many land owners have traditionally been able to avoid or delay responsibility for remediation of these sites by simply paying the annual property taxes.
Edmonton city councillor and chair of Edmonton's contaminated gas stations task force, Ben Henderson, and board member for the Environmental Services Association of Alberta, Jeff Dirks, joined Colin to discuss such issues as: Why these sites have remained contaminated for so long? Who should be responsible for cleaning up the sites? And what might a more environmentally-aware society demand of governments and businesses in the future?
