Improving Ontario Air Quality Standards
CELA has been calling on the Ontario government to change the way it controls air pollution in the province. Ontario’s air pollution approval system is in need of major overhaul. The province has yet to enact enforceable standards for cancer causing-chemicals like benzene and benzo(a)pyrene as promised over four years ago. In communities like Hamilton and Sarnia, industries located very close to residential areas continue to release harmful contaminants into Ontario’s air.
