Although it is known more for its oil sands than its flower gardens, earlier this week the town of Fort McMurray, Alberta
was voted Canada's cleanest city
in an online poll. The northern boom town was up against the likes of Victoria, BC
, Halifax, NS
, and Niagara-on-the-lake, ON
and to the shock of many won by a landslide. Host Peter Oldring
had the opportunity to speak with the town's environmental commissioner Nic Burnett
to find out his reaction to the news.
