The Ministry of the Environment’s court case against ArcelorMittal Dofasco has been adjourned for another three months.
Company lawyers have been given the extra time to review the ministry’s evidence, which was only disclosed last week, in regards to allegations of 13 visible pollution emissions.
Environment Hamilton’s Lynda Lukasik says they are learning that the current process in place to charge industries for alleged visible emission problems doesn’t work in a timely manner – adding that the MOE “only appears to be making it worse”.
In the meantime, she stresses that “we’re all getting more and more frustrated”.
The two sides will be back in court on December.3rd.
