Following 3 fatalities caused by ammonia, British Columbia MP has called on the Canadian Government to begin phasing out the fatal gas.

Commonly used in refrigeration systems, Stetski told the House that there had been over 50 ammonia leaks in Canada since 2007, “many resulting in injuries and deaths”.

Maintaining that CO2 systems offer a safer and more efficient alternative, Stetski said: “I call on the federal government to work with the provinces to help municipalities phase out of ammonia based systems to ensure there are no more tragedies like the one suffered by the people of Fernie.”
