Silent Rivers of Oil: Environmental Consequences, Regulations, and Resistance on Canadian Oil Pipelines since 1947 is an environmental history research project that explores the social and environmental consequences of the development, operation, and regulation of long-distance oil pipelines in Canada. It examines Canada’s postwar oil boom in the decades following the discoveries of substantial deposits of crude oil at Leduc, Alberta when corporations began transporting massive volumes of petroleum across the continent via long-distance pipelines.
