A spreading sheen of oil has now forced two Saskatchewan cities to halt their normal water treatment procedures. The slick is the result of a leak of thousands of litres of crude oil into the North Saskatchewan River from a Husky Energy pipeline last Thursday. The pollution forced North Battleford to halt water intake from the river on Friday morning. Jim Toye, Prince Albert's city manager, says it was their turn this morning. (Prince Albert city council is holding a special meeting today to discuss what Toye calls drastic water conservation measures that call for a fine of one-thousand dollars if anyone is caught breaking the rules.)
