From the Vancouver Sun:

Syncrude pays $3.2-million penalty over duck deaths

An Alberta provincial court judge has accepted a $3.2-million creative sentence on Syncrude Canada over federal and provincial charges stemming from the deaths of more than 1,600 ducks on one of its oilsands tailings pond two years ago. Under the proposal, the oil company must pay an $800,000 fine by Nov. 1. This file photo shows two dead mallard drakes floating in a bitumen mat in the Syncrude Aurora Tailings Pond in April 2008 near Ft. Mc Murray, Alberta.
