But the largest test pond was 4 hectares -- roughly 1/200th the size of Syncrudes lake. Were Confident The big question we have is how long will it take before the water is clean, how long is it going to take before the littoral zones develop and the shoreline vegetation builds up? Robb says. But were confident in the technology. One need not look far to see what could go wrong with this containment strategy. Some 400 miles south of Calgary lies the Berkeley Pit, a 900-foot-deep lake in Montana that began forming after copper mining ceased in 1982 and groundwater began filling the gaping hole. The water, loaded with heavy metals and as acidic as lemon juice, now threatens to spill over into local river basins, according to the Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology. Reclamation Strategy Canada boasts the worlds third-largest reserves of bitumen after Saudi Arabia and Venezuela. So any effort to mitigate the pollution that results from mining the fossil fuel must by necessity be grand in scope, says Dan Wicklum, chief executive of Canadas Oil Sands view site...

She draw large applause when she mentioned a portion of Calgarys ring road that was officially opened Friday, and the signing a framework agreement on moving Alberta oil to the West Coast after months of hard-fought negotiations with B.C. Former cabinet minister Lorne Taylor wont reveal whether he will support the premier, but acknowledged Friday that she gave a good speech." He said he hopes once the leadership review is completed, the party can focus on rebuilding its support in rural southern Alberta, where the Wildrose party dominated in the last election. <br>More:

The contaminated water - containing clay, mud, shale and coal fines - spilled into the river after an onsite water containment pond at the Obed Mountain Mine near Hinton, Alberta, breached on Oct. 31. The sediment plume, travelling at a rate of less than 2km an hour, is currently around 125km (80 miles) upstream of the oil sands production hub of Fort McMurray in the north of the province. Jessica Potter from Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development (AESRD) said communities downstream of the mine had been warned not to draw from the river. "We have asked community water treatment plants continue to refrain from using the river as a resource when the plume is going through," she said. The AESRD handed Sherritt an environmental protection order to put in place recovery, management and assessment plans. "We began our testing the morning after this happened and, to date, these samples have indicated that the sediment travelling downstream in the Athabasca River poses no risk Kim Kardashian to human health or safety," said Sean McCaughan, Sherritt's senior vice president, coal. <br>More:

A few years after the Second World War ended, my wifeas parents moved to Ontario from Italy. As their families grew and prospered, they spread out across the continent and beyond, wherever job opportunities took them. Today, Alberta is experiencing the latest in a long series of in-migration waves, as hungry jobseekers hoping to build a better life move here from other parts of Canada and abroad. The provinceas population recently topped four million a double the 1980 total a with an army of newcomers arriving from Ontario, Quebec, the Maritimes and British Columbia.
