EDMONTON. x–12s. Canadian Natural Resources Limited is facing 11 environmental charges over the release of a potentially deadly gas near an aboriginal community in northern Alberta. The provincial government says the charges stem from the release of hydrogen sulphide gas on August 2012 from the C-N-R-L Horizon oilsands upgrader facility north of Fort McMurray. Nikki Booth is a spokeswoman for Alberta’s Environment Department.

TAG: The province says it learned of the leaks after getting complaints from the Fort McKay (mc-KY’) First Nation and reports from air monitoring stations. The government alleges C-N-R-L released the gas, failed to use its equipment properly, failed to properly report what happened and provided misleading information to the government and the Fort McKay First Nation.
