An air monitoring system is set up at the school in Little Buffalo. Greenpeace is concerned about the Alberta government’s response to the spill. The government initially misinformed the community and the public about the distance from the spill to the local school and has not disclosed on what basis it asserted in the first days of the spill that there were no health risks to the community, including to children at the school that was closed due to illness from odours.
