Hundreds protest public service cuts at UCP meeting in Calgary

  Hundreds protest public service cuts at UCP meeting in Calgary Teachers, nurses and government workers marched outside a United Conservative Party meeting in Calgary in protest of cuts to public services and the potential loss of thousands of public sector jobs announced on Friday. They carried signs that read "I love Alberta public education" and "Hands off my pension." They chanted "Jason Kenney has got to go" and "Shame" from across the hotel parking lot, while UCP members lined up to get lunch from food trucks contracted to supply food for the event.

Officials on the scene told News 2 it was an ammonia leak that caused the hazardous materials response, which is when substances in quantities or forms may pose a reasonable risk to health, property or the environment. A total of 17 people were evacuated from the Coca - Cola building.

When they arrived, the workers were already evacuating. All 51 of them waited at a nearby hotel as firefighters and the hazmat team swept the building.

Crews found ammonia levels of 70 parts per million, which is not considered to be lethal.

The plant was ventilated and isolated, and the workers were back inside by 9 p.m. No injuries were reported.

According to the Calgary Fire Department, the ammonia was being used as a coolant.
