ALBERTA - (June 13/13) Zama City Toxic Waste Spill in northern Alberta has killed off roughly 42 hectares of Boreal Forest, in what could be the biggest environmental disaster in North America in recent history - details of which were not released until yesterday: "This is a massive spill of toxics into one of the most important wetlands in Canada, if not the world," said spokesman Keith Stewart. The leak comes after two other major spills in the area, including 800,000 litres of wastewater mixture from Pace Oil and Gas Ltd., and 3.5 million litres of oil from a Plains Midstream Canada pipeline. James Ahnassay, chief of the Dene Tha First Nation, told the Globe and Mail “every plant and tree died” in the area affected by the Apache spill.
