OMG! This is horrible. The lake should not have this toxic sludge in it. This could kill anything. A kid could wander into it. Sadly noted. Thanks Jacqueline.

Noted...this is awful. I've read that getting oil from the sands of Canada is the next big moneymaker for the oil companies. This story shows how bad an idea that really is! Just the picture of the place is disgusting to see. Ugh. But, thanks for posting it Jacqueline.
