Linda Nesset lives near Calgary’s Canada Olympic Park, which stores ammonia to keep the arenas and the luge and bobsled tracks ice-cold. Ammonia — a colourless gas with a sharp, suffocating odour that can kill in seconds — is commonly used in arenas and other recreation facilities across the city and the country.

A Calgary woman is slamming what she calls the “huge risk” of an undisclosed amount of ammonia stored at Canada Olympic Park, demanding to know why the facility hasn’t filed a hazardous materials risk assessment with the city.
