Believe it or not, pipelines will probably play a big part in making your holiday festive.
Because 97 per cent of Canada’s natural gas and crude oil production is moved by transmission pipelines, it’s likely a pipeline transported the natural gas that will fuel your fireplace on Christmas Day, and a pipeline probably moved the crude oil that helped make the smart phone you’re giving your mother.
