No mutant children at Elm St Park

Four employees of Health Canada’s Radiation Protection Bureau were taking samples from Elm St Park today. They are co-op students sent to study radon and radiation levels around the Toronto area.

Kaela Maclellan, a Carleton University student from Ottawa, explained that they are checking “the amount of radon as well as the surface radiation”. Everything is fine, she said; “9—it’s one of the lowest sites we’ve seen in a while.”

Ellen Leigh, also a Carleton student, said that they would be in the Toronto area for some time, taking samples from around the city. All the data are taken from parks, and at the end of the study, the Bureau “will publish it in a map”.

Happily, while kids are free to pretend they are the Incredible Hulk, no real green mutants will be created in Weston.
