Panel to study Canada oil sands impact

Alberta is forming an independent panel of scientists to study data on water pollution near the Canadian province’s oil sands after a report by a noted ecologist concluded the industry’s operations were contaminating a northern river system.

The move, announced by Alberta Environment Minister Rob Renner on Friday, is aimed at ending an emotional debate over the impact of oil sands activity on the Athabasca River, which flows north through the massive industrial development.
