Preview Clip

Saskatchewan Energy Minister Bill Boyd admits the province's much-touted carbon-capture facility isn't going as well as planned. And background documents show that officials knew about what are described as "serious design issues" at the 1-point-4 billion dollar facility at Boundary Dam when the grand opening was held last October. New Democrat Cathy Sproule says it's disappointing to learn that the facility is only operating at 40 per cent capacity. (The goal was to reduce carbon-dioxide emissions from the coal-fired power plant near Estevan by one million tonnes annually and sell the gas to Cenovus Energy for enhanced oil recovery. SaskPower had to pay 12 million dollars to Cenovus last year because the utility couldn't deliver enough CO2.)
