EDMONTON – The Alberta government has given Suncor one month to fix problems with one of its wastewater treatment ponds, two years after the problem was discovered.
The company was prohibited from releasing water from the pond — the final step in Suncor’s treatment process — into the Athabasca River in March 2011. Toxicity in the water was found to exceed allowable limits.
“They had to close the discharge outlet, which they did,” said Alberta Environment spokeswoman Jessica Potter.

EDMONTON — As Canada faces increasing scrutiny of its weak climate change policy for oilsands development, a new report illustrates how both Alberta and the federal government can better manage emissions and improve the country’s international reputation.
The new Pembina Institute report, Carbon Pricing Approaches in Oil and Gas Producing Jurisdictions, compares climate change policy approaches in Alberta, British Columbia, California, Australia, Norway and the European Union. For each policy, the assessment looks at the incentive to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (measured in dollars per tonne), the percentage of emissions receiving that incentive, and other metrics.
