Etobicoke Creek is currently running a strange red colour from somewhere way up in Mississauga right down to the lake. I took the following pictures at Marie Curtis Park, near the mouth of the creek.
Apparently 400 litres of red ink were spilled into the creek yesterday. There are news articles which suggest a clean-up is under way. However there is no information as to how toxic this stuff might be to fish, birds and other wildlife. There is also no information about how it happened or who might be responsible.
