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.


Brownfields: better information, fewer errors

Given the time normally required to propose and adopt regulations, it would be difficult to correct these problems by July 1. The regulatory amendments might be posted to the Environmental Bill of Rights Registry next month. We are encouraging the ministry to get on with the changes as quickly as possible.
