W5 investigates a small Alberta town that once prospered thanks to the oil industry that is now edging ever closer to collapsing because of it.

W5's Molly Thomas investigates how tens of thousands of inactive oil wells have been left to contaminate private land across Alberta. Entire Alberta towns are demaning oil companies clean up inactive wells, but are the oil companies under any pressure to do so?
