OUR COMMUNITY HAS A RIGHT TO KNOW!

EH submitted provincial Environmental Bill of Rights comments recently on a posting related to an amendment to a provincial air emissions permit for Hamilton Specialty Bar located on Sherman Avenue North. When we reviewed the file at the Ministry of Environment & Climate Change’s Hamilton District office, we learned, in  more detail, about provincial requirements that the company conduct annual air monitoring tests on the plant's pollution control stack because it is emitting cancer-causing dioxins and furans into our air.   But we are very much aware that the broader community has never been provided with details about this situation.   In our submission to the Ministry, we expressed strong concern about this reality and  requested that the company be required, at a minimum, to hold an annual public meeting to update the community on annual stack test results and whether problem emissions are getting better or worse. 

It’s our air – and we believe that we all have a right to demand the highest level of openness and transparency both from the MInistry of Environment & Climate Change and from local industries so that we can hold local polluters to account!
