Fort McMoney
 n.— «At Suncor Energy’s Millennium oil sands project, just north of Fort McMurray, Alta., the unmistakable odour of black gold drifts up from the ground and hangs thick in the air.…The locals have taken to calling this northern outpost “Fort McMoney” and it’s not hard to see why. The signs of sudden, conspicuous growth are everywhere—from the overflowing sewage treatment plant to the huge morning queues at the two Tim Hortons franchises.» —“Alberta is about to get wildly rich and powerful” by Steve Maich in Fort McMurray, Alta. Maclean’s (Can.) June 13, 2005.
