I fully support the ministry's proposal to issue a director's order under section 18 of the Environmental Protection Act to Rain Carbon Canada Inc. to ensure that the company submits a request for a site-specific standard as soon as practicable. The standard will include plans to reduce emissions of benzene and benzo(a)pyrene. As a resident of lower Hamilton I am extremely concerned with the amount of carcinogenic chemicals being released into the air we breath. If there are ways to reduce these emissions, then companies like Rain Carbon need to invest in those technologies to make it happen. It's hard to support any industry that is actively killing the residents.
