[AFP] 73,000 Litres of Radioactive Water Leaked into lake Ontario - Page 15

So what.
Free water purification until stuff grows in it again. Its probably still safe to swim in.
At a cancer center in a hospital, I left my soda in its styrophome cup in the radiation-treatment room. After a few treatments, I finished my drink.

Toronto isn't inhabited by just 2.6 million people and that isn't even the map of Pickering... does this news source have any credibility at all?

Lets put this in perspective:

1 cubic kilometer = 1 000 000 000 000 litres

Lake Ontario: 1,640 cubic km

78000L is 4.75 x10^-9 Percent of the total volume. Immeasurable!

We are talking about 73000L though... so it is even less than that

Wrong - since the water was not radioactive, but rather, was demineralized, like the water you are supposed to use in a steam iron...
