Town in Northwest Territories Leads Canada in Reported Pipeline Incidents

(CBC News)

Norman Wells, a remote town in the Northwest Territories, ranks as the community with the most reported incidents on federally-regulated pipelines in the country, a fact that's surprised key community members. 

Records obtained by CBC News from the National Energy Board (NEB), Canada's pipeline regulator, show more than 70 incidents — anything from spills and leaks to worker injuries and fires — near the town between 2006 and 2012.
