The evacuation is currently to a three-mile radius. The facility, operated by Husky Oil, processes oil from the tar sands, and from the Bakken shale.

This is the same Husky Oil that shut off water to cities along the North Saskatchewan, including Prince Albert, two summers ago when their pipeline failed.

Yeah, they can handle it.

That facility can hold 3.6 million barrels.

The current facility in Burnaby - pre expansion - can hold 1.6 million.
