CBC News - Edmonton - Oil sector funds Alta. group fighting stench

CBC News - Edmonton - Oil sector funds Alta. group fighting stench: "A group of Alberta landowners fighting a tar-like stench will be getting support from what's believed to be the source of the odour — the oil industry.

Carmen Langer of the Three Creeks Emissions Working Group near Peace River said Alberta's oil industry regulator had been paying for their group's meeting rooms and a mediator as part of efforts to find a solution to the smell.

But Langer said that ended last month when the Energy and Resources Conservation Board told them it would no longer foot the bill.

Langer said oil companies in the area have agreed to pay for the services, including a mediator."
