Thankfully only 4 people were hurt, and not too badly. With so much oil and gas production going on, it's good this doesn't happen more often. Lots
of regulations are usually in place with Canadian industry, but, I've been hearing that they've been relaxing some of the regulations lately.
I think that video is the propane explosion in Toronto, the resulting fire from northern Alberta, just south of Fort McMurray (also known as Fort
McMoney), wasn't nearly as bad. Minor in comparison, and was under control by that evening. That blast from Toronto was HUGE.
When I googled this, I did notice that it's mostly Cdn news sources. Maybe the rest of the world likes to turn a blind eye to how dangerous it can be
working around this industry. Either that or they know it isn't enough of an accident to impact gas and oil supply.
