Some of you might already be aware that emissions from the coke operations at AMD (Dofasco) have been worse than ever throughout May and most of June. The stacks were pretty much releasing black smoke continuously. This is in light of AMD asking for a 1 year extension to restore/upgrade their coke making ovens. As of now AMD has not even met the 2018 emission standards and we are already 6 months into the year.
We would like to engage you by sending a message to the Ministry of Environment that our Hamilton community deserves better than having to accept what is most convenient for our industry neighbours.
Join us at William's Cafe at Pier 8 (skating level, indoors upstairs) to fill you in on what YOU can do to HELP US!
Lynda from Environment Hamilton will also present a brief overview of the coke operation pollution history.
