50+6 Cyanide Scare in Whitby

Driving to Canadian Tire to recycle some motor oil I approached the corner of Hopkins and Consumers in Whitby which is the next town to the west of me in Oshawa.

Fire Trucks Police and the Hasmat Team had the intersection taped off due to what I found out later was a chemical spill in a factory there and they suspected there may of been Cyanide in the spill.

The area was blocked off for hours while emergency services figured out how to deal with the spill and many people were not able to leave the area due to driveways of businesses being blocked.

If interested you can look at the news story of the incident here.

Just another day in the life of a 50 year old man.
