Ontario investigates after Sarnia plant evacuated over possible leak

Nova Chemicals in Corunna, south of Sarnia, evacuated staff to a “safe location” Wednesday after a potential leak triggered plant alarms, the company said. Hydrogen sulphide, which has a rotten egg odour, can paralyze the human sense of smell and cause death at high enough concentrations. The ministry spokesperson said staff are investigating why Nova didn’t immediately report the spill.
