How come there is little outcry about this? Oilsands tailings leaking into groundwater: http://www.edmontonjournal.com/business/oilsands+tailings+leaking+into+groundwater+oliver+told/7977885/story.html
"Tailings ponds from oilsands production are leaking and contaminating
Alberta’s groundwater, Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver was told
in an internal memo obtained by Postmedia News. The memo, released
through access to information legislation, said that federal government
scientists, including Quebec City-based research geoscientist Martine
Savard, had discovered evidence of the contamination in new research
that rejected longstanding claims that toxins in the region of the
Athabasca River were coming from natural sources. “The studies have,
for the first time, detected potentially harmful, mining-related
organic acid contaminants in the groundwater outside a long-established
out-of-pit tailings pond,” said the memo from deputy minister Serge
Dupont, dated June 19, 2012."
