Brownfields: better information, fewer errors

By: Envirolaw  09-12-2011

Given the time normally required to propose and adopt regulations, it would be difficult to correct these problems by July 1. On the other hand, it would be worse to let the errors fester,  especially because the government now refuses to make regulatory changes except on 1 July and January each year. With an election coming this fall, any regulatory changes that don’t make it into law July 1, 2011 might have to wait an entire additional year.

We are encouraging the ministry to get on with the changes as quickly as possible. If they do, the regulatory amendments might be posted to the Environmental Bill of Rights Registry next month.

Air Pollution: what’s really there

As a result, the MOE has now issued draft Notices of noncompliance with Regulation 419 to a series of industries across the province, most already struggling with high fuel costs and the high Canadian dollar. The MOE proposes to resolve the disputes by further monitoring, but what good is more monitoring if the ministry won’t accept the results.
