    Labour Movement Calls for Shutdown of CNRL Tank Farm - Canada newswire
    At its Biennial Convention today, Alberta Federation of Labour delegates voted unanimously for a resolution calling for the immediate shutdown of the CNRL Tank Farm site north of Fort McMurray until government health and safety inspectors determine that the worksite is safe.

    The resolution was made in response to news that a second tank collapsed late Saturday night. A first collapse killed two workers last month.

    'A second collapse this quickly after the first tragic accident raises many questions about how safe that workplace is,' says AFL President Gil McGowan. 'The labour movement is demanding that the site be shut down until such time that government safety officers can assure workers on that site and all Albertans that it is safe.'

    Idiot...the tank farm WAS shut down pending the investigation. What are you gong to ask for next? The daytime to be brighter than nighttime? Go make demands elsewhere, jerk. Get bent.
