neighboring the Baltic Sea have been concerned about this, since a major oil leak in a seagoing tanker would be disastrous for the Baltic—given the slow exchange of water. The tourism industry surrounding the Baltic Sea is naturally concerned about oil pollution. * Jūrmala, Latvia * Palanga, Lithuania * Nida, Lithuania Water quality has also been an issue. The city of Kaunas, with a population of about 400,000, had no water purification plant until 1999; sewage was sent directly into the Neman River. Tertiary wastewater (Sewage treatment) treatment is scheduled to come on-line in 2007. Wastewater treatment in Kaunas River and lake pollution are other legacies of Soviet carelessness with the environment. The Courland Lagoon, for example, separated from the Baltic Sea by a strip of high dunes and pine forests, is about 85 percent contaminated. Beaches in the Baltic resorts, such as the well-known vacation area of Palanga, are frequently closed for swimming because of contamination. Forests affected by acid rain are found in the vicinity of Jonava, Mažeikiai, and Elektrėnai, which are the chemical, oil, and power-generation centers. Lithuania was among the first former Soviet republics (Republics of the Soviet Union) to introduce environmental regulations. However, because of Moscow's emphasis on increasing production and because of numerous local violations, technological backwardness, and political apathy, serious environmental problems now exist. - 5.

Sport: The First Five Millennia, By Allen Guttmann, p.235 In south western Iran the game was introduced in 1907 by British (United Kingdom) sailors and workers. At that time they were working at port cities Bushehr, Khorramshahr, Bandar Abbas and major oil refineries such as Abadan and Masjed Soleiman in the province of Khuzestan, the latter area even boasting a football league.

incorporated as Interprovincial Pipe Line (IPL) in 1949, shortly after Canada's first major oil discovery at Leduc, Alberta. The original pipeline was constructed to transport oil from western Canada to refineries in the east. IPL became Enbridge Pipelines in 1998. The Enbridge name is a portmanteau from "energy" and "bridge". width 11.1% valign top '''T8E''' Sherwood Park Central width 11.1% valign top '''T9E''' Leduc (Leduc, Alberta) (Includes YEG) - This Ukrainian immigration to Canada was largely agrarian (Farmer), and at first Ukrainian Canadians concentrated in distinct block settlements in the parkland belt of the prairie provinces (Canadian Prairies): Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. While the Canadian Prairies are often compared to the steppes of Ukraine, the settlers came from Halychyna (Galicia (eastern Europe)) and Bukovyna – which are not steppe lands, but are wooded areas in the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains. This is why Ukrainians coming to Canada settled in the wooded aspen parklands – in an arch from Winnipeg and Stuartburn, Manitoba to Edmonton and Leduc, Alberta – rather than the open prairies further south. As well the feudal nature (Manorialism) of land ownership in the Austrian Empire meant that in the "Old Country" people had to pay the ''pan'' (landlord) for all their firewood and lumber for building. Upon arriving in Canada, the settlers often demanded wooded land from officials (Dominion Lands Act) so that they would be able to supply their own needs, even if this meant taking land that was less productive for crops. They also attached deep importance to settling near to family, people from nearby villages or other culturally similar groups, furthering the growth of the block settlements. Geography This riding is located south of Edmonton (Edmonton, Alberta) and is legally described as commencing at the intersection of the westerly limit of the Town of Devon (Devon, Alberta) with the right bank of the North Saskatchewan River; thence generally southeasterly along the westerly limit of said town to the southwesterly corner of said town (at Highway 60 (Alberta Highway 60)); thence southerly along said highway to Township Road 494; thence easterly along said road to the westerly limit of the City of Leduc (Leduc, Alberta); thence easterly, southerly, easterly, northerly and easterly along the southerly limit of said city to Highway No. 623; thence easterly along said highway to the easterly limit of Leduc County (Leduc County, Alberta); thence generally southwesterly along said limit to the northerly limit of County of Wetaskiwin No. 10 (Wetaskiwin County No. 10, Alberta); thence easterly and generally southerly along the northerly and easterly limits of said county to the easterly limit of Ponoka County (Ponoka County, Alberta); thence generally southerly along said limit to the northerly limit of Lacombe County (Lacombe County, Alberta); thence generally southeasterly, generally southerly and generally westerly along the northerly, easterly and southerly limits of said county to the east boundary of R 4 W 5; thence south along the east boundary of R 4 W 5 to the south boundary of Tp 38; thence west along the south boundary of Tp 38 to the west boundary of R 8 W 5; thence north along the west boundary of R 8 W 5 to the north boundary of Tp 41; thence east along the north boundary of Tp 41 to the right bank of the North Saskatchewan River; thence generally northerly and generally easterly along said bank to the point of commencement. Long range LRT plans City council in the past has looked at creating long range transportation plans that include the LRT reaching St. Albert (St. Albert, Alberta) to the northwest, Lewis Estates (Potter Greens, Edmonton) in the west (with West Edmonton Mall en route), the Edmonton International Airport and Leduc (Leduc, Alberta) to the south, Mill Woods in the southeast, and Fort Saskatchewan to the northeast. In 1947 an even bigger field opened at Leduc (Leduc, Alberta), 20 miles (32 km) south of Edmonton, and in 1948 oil mining began at Redwater. Both these fields were overshadowed in importance in 1956 with the discovery of the Pembina field west of Edmonton. Other fields were discovered east of Grande Prairie and in central Alberta. From collection and distribution points near Edmonton the oil is sent by pipeline to refineries, some as distant as Sarnia, Toronto and Montreal to the east, Vancouver to the west, and especially the U.S. to the South. Interprovincial Pipe Line (IPL) began in 1949, transporting oil to refineries in the east. IPL became Enbridge Pipelines in 1998 and now has 4500 employees; it moves 2 million barrels a day over 13,500 miles of pipe. The district was created in the 2004 boundary re-distribution (Alberta Electoral Boundary Re-distribution, 2004) from the old Leduc (Leduc (provincial electoral district)) electoral district. It was named after the city of Leduc (Leduc, Alberta) and the county (Leduc County, Alberta) of the same name as well as the towns of Beaumont (Beaumont, Alberta) and Devon (Devon, Alberta). The district is mixed urban and rural as it also contains large rural portions.

''Gasoline Alley'', located at the south end of the city, is a popular stop for travellers headed for Calgary or Edmonton, with several fuel stations and food establishments. Continuing north, the highway again bypasses the smaller communities, this time to the west. Leduc (Leduc, Alberta), south of Edmonton, is bisected like Airdrie; however, this has been a result of westward growth of the community. The highway also passes immediately east of Edmonton International Airport, about 15 km south of Edmonton. '''Beaumont''' is a town in Leduc County (Leduc County, Alberta) within the Edmonton Capital Region of Alberta, Canada. It is located at the intersection of Highway 625 (Alberta Highway 625) and Highway 814 (Alberta Highway 814), east of the Town of Drayton Valley (Drayton Valley, Alberta), to the City of Leduc (Leduc, Alberta) where it ends at Highway 2 (Alberta Highway 2).

technology, which amounts to 97% of Canadian oil reserves and 75% of total North American petroleum reserves. The Cold Lake deposits extend across the Alberta's eastern border into Saskatchewan. In addition to the Alberta oil sands, there are major oil sands deposits on Melville Island (Melville Island, Canada) in the Canadian Arctic islands, which are unlikely to see commercial production in the foreseeable future. The largest bitumen deposit

on the boomtown of Fort McMurray. These oil sands, hosted in the McMurray Formation, consist of a mixture of crude bitumen (a semi-solid form of crude oil), silica sand, clay minerals, and water. The Athabasca deposit is the largest known reservoir of crude bitumen in the world and the largest of three major oil sands deposits in Alberta, along with the nearby Peace River (Peace River, Alberta) and Cold Lake deposits (Cold Lake oil sands).
