With this week’s comment deadline, many organizations have expressed their concerns about the proposed amendments to Reg. 153/04, and the associated new cleanup standards. The Ontario Bar Association’s bottom line:


If the Ministry of the Environment adopts the very stringent new standards it has proposed, it must offset 

them with major improvements to risk assessment or risk sterilizing numerous contaminated sites, 

with grave environmental and economic consequences. It must also provide adequate resources, to allow property development decisions to be made in a timely fashion, and improve the management of cross-boundary issues.
