MOE RE­SPONSE

The Hamilton Spectator - - BUSINESS -

Q. Are there any or­ders from the min­istry with re­spect to coffin­ing at Do­fasco?

A. There was one Pro­vin­cial Of­fi­cer’s Or­der is­sued in 2008, how­ever, the min­istry re­placed the or­der with a Site Spe­cific Stan­dard, which is a more ef­fec­tive way of get­ting the com­pany to meet its re­quire­ments.

Q. Mem­bers of the cit­i­zens com­mit­tee say that im­prove­ments were sup­posed to be in place Fe­bru­ary 2015. Are those im­prove­ments in place or are they yet to come?

A. When the com­pany ap­plied to re­new their Site Spe­cific Stan­dard in 2015 they in­di­cated that in or­der to fur­ther re­duce emis­sions from coffin­ing, they would have to con­cen­trate on re­duc­ing the amount of iron to be coffined. The min­istry con­tin­ues to mon­i­tor the im­ple­men­ta­tion of their iron reduction strat­egy.
