Syncrude successfully protects killer tailing pond from Green Peace attack.

Fort McMurray RCMP have arrested 11 Greenpeace activists for trespassing at the Syncrude Canada Ltd. Aurora oilsands site and hanging a banner that read 'World's Dirtiest Oil: Stop the Tar Sands'.
A Syncrude spokesperson said the Greenpeace action hasn't affected production.
When asked about the banner, he replied, no problem we just dropped it into the pond and it sank like a duck, then quickly dissolved.
