"Hundreds of dead and dying ducks could cost Canada's biggest oil sands producer C$1 million ($990,000) after the migrating waterfowl landed in a pond of oily, toxic sludge in northern Alberta.

Syncrude Canada's operations were under investigation by environmental regulators on Wednesday after as many as 500 birds landed in the waste water, known as a tailings pond, at the Aurora North mine near Fort McMurray, Alberta."

Way back then it was Exxon Valdez. So it's then, not than.

Well, every Canadian on the board just breathed a big sigh of relief over that one!

However, Belgium comes out looking all the worse.
