Do Canadians need to be concerned about attacks on critical infrastructure such as pipelines?
In this post, CEPA’s former president and CEO, Brenda Kenny, answers your questions about possible threats to Canada’s energy transportation network. Plus, we expose a significant risk to safety and reveal what every Canadian can do to help.
We received these questions via Facebook:
“Why do you believe that you are safe from the serious damage that has been done by hackers?” – George M.
“Who and how will this pipeline be protected from a possible terrorist attack?” – Tony R. (Cambridge, Ont.)

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been answering your questions in our #PipelinesExposed video series. Have concerns about leaks? Questions about damage from earthquakes? Reservations about emergency response in remote areas? These posts can help you dig up the truth about what’s happening underground:
The Canadian Energy Pipeline Association represents Canada’s transmission pipeline companies who operate approximately 115,000 kilometres of pipelines in Canada. In 2013, these energy highways moved approximately 1.2 billion barrels of liquid petroleum products and 5.3 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. Our members transport 97 per cent of Canada’s daily natural gas and onshore crude oil from producing regions to markets throughout North America.
