Polluters to face greater liability for offshore drilling spills

Ottawa has announced new provisions Tuesday to ensure the oil industry is responsible for cleaning up spills during offshore drilling and commercial production.

New measures — expected to be introduced this fall in Parliament and the legislatures of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland — will increase liability and transparency.

The changes will leave operators with unlimited liability when they’re at fault. Even where there is no proof of fault or negligence, operators will now be responsible for up to $1 billion in clean-up costs. That’s up from the current provision of $30 million.
