Jul. 11, 2012, Ramsay, AB - Poultry firm Lilydale has been fined $180,000 for an ammonia leak that endangered residents of Calgary's Ramsay neighbourhood, but residents are seeking $250,000 in damages.

According to a report in the Calgary Herald, while Lilydale plead guilty to leak that ocurred on Sept. 13, 2009, the matter was only recently settled in the courts.

Residents of Ramsay are claiming that when the leak ocurred, which was due to employee error at the plant, they were evacuated and suffered sore throats and headaches due to the exposure.
