In a precedent-setting decision that will impact air, water and waste decisions throughout the province, the Ontario Divisional Court ruled that a citizen-led appeal of Lafarge Canada’s plan to burn tires, plastics, bone meal and other waste in Bath, Ontario will go forward. The court rejected a last-ditch effort by the Ministry of the Environment and Lafarge to shut down an Environmental Review Tribunal hearing. Lake Ontario Waterkeeper & Gord Downie, Clean Air Bath, Loyalist Environmental Coalition, and members of The Tragically Hip won the right to appeal licences for air emissions and a waste site last year. The groups cited concerns about potential air pollution, water contamination, and human health impacts. To download a copy of the decision, please visit www.ecojustice.ca
