Langley letter: Petroleum sector must clean up its act

A local letter writer says leaks are a significant cause of pollution.

Dear Editor,

Leaking gas and oil wells, drilled on the cheap, are creating more air pollution than commercial trucks make. 30 per cent of the wells drilled in the last 20 years are leaking/wasting natural gas.

This gas is making climate change worse, for no gain for anybody.

We need to make the drillers clean up their own mess.

Ottawa must stand against oil and gas industry to stop methane pollution.

Jim Leuba, Langley
