Joe Anglin Reacts To Oil Pipeline Spill

A pipeline leak that spilled up to 475 000 litres of oil into the Red Deer River has been contained and clean up is underway.

However, those living near the leak are still being affected as properties have been dampened with oil and fumes.

Rimbey-Rocky Mountain House-Sundre MLA Joe Anglin expects the clean up to take a minimum of 3 months, and he believes it could even take up to a year to complete.

Anglin talks about his biggest concern with this situation.
