A horrible smell that was sending a chill up the spine of many customers at a northeast Calgary Dairy Queen has finally been tracked down. Sujad Bandali said he was desperate to find out the source , especially because it had persisted for so long. He says the smell varied, floating between propane

Hours before the grand opening, Bandali smelled natural gas near the entrance, so he called in the Calgary Fire Department and ATCO, but tests all came up negative.

The smell persisted, however, to the point some customers would complain, and more than one called the fire department to report a possible natural gas leak.

But each time, tests came back negative.

Desperate for an answer, Bandali put up a sign on the door last week assuring customers it was safe to go inside, and even offering a free Blizzard each week for a year to whoever could find the source of the smell.

"We had from one end of Canada to the other end, people were responding," said Bandali. "They were leaving us voicemails and emails. Our phone hasn't shut off, we finally had to modify the message. We almost had to hire a full-time person to answer the calls."

ATCO crews went back to the store on Tuesday to do another check — their third in three years — but again came up empty handed.

Then one of the technicians got the idea to do what's known as a "dead check."

"Essentially what it is, is you turn off everything in the building that uses natural gas, then you can confirm if the meter is still turning," said Ryan Germaine, ATCO's vice-president of operations for the Calgary and Edmonton regions.

"If it looks like you're still using gas, it's possible you have a small leak in the building somewhere."

That was done Wednesday morning and a small leak was detected in building's ceiling.

"I would say this case is quite unusual," said Germaine. "Credit to the individuals who were there, they took multiple steps to do what they could to help figure it out. They didn't give up."

The owner of a Dairy Queen in Calgary , Alberta really wants to know what the hell that smell is. Sujad Bandali, the DQ owner, is offering a free Blizzard every week for a year to anyone who can find the source of a weird smell near the restaurant's entrance.

Because natural gas is colourless and odourless, an additive is put in to give it a distinct smell.

Natural gas is also lighter than air, which added to the difficulty of finding the leak in the ceiling, said Germaine, adding ATCO receives about 20,000 calls per year of possible gas leaks in Alberta.

Bandali said he's just relieved the smell is no longer there.

"Finally, I proved it to everybody, I was not losing my mind," he said.
