A May 15, 2015 CBC article is entitled: “Etobicoke Creek mystery spill may take a week to clean up.”

The opening paragraphs read:

“Workers continued to clean up a mystery spill in Etobicoke Creek into the weekend – and to figure out just what caused it in the first place.

“The spill, in the portion of the creek between Toronto and Mississauga near The West Mall and Sherway Drive, left nearby residents disturbed.

” ‘It smelled, really. It’s hard to describe, something you don’t want to breathe,’ said Mississauga resident Frank Petrielli.

“Clean-up crews used hoses to vacuum oil out of the water and put down booms and blankets to absorb the spill.

“The workers, who’ve been contracted by the city of Toronto, believe the spill is either diesel fuel, oil or paint.”
