Environment Hamilton has posted a video documenting air pollution from ArcelorMittal Dofasco over this summer.
In September 2009, ArcelorMittal Dofasco launched their Blue Skies Air Quality Action Plan improve air quality in Hamilton, saying, "ArcelorMittal Dofasco and the Ontario government have a mutual goal of improving air quality in Ontario."
According to a September, 2012 Environment Hamilton report [PDF], "The plant is emitting high levels of the potent cancer-causing substance benzo(a)pyrene, among other hazardous pollutants of concern."
The group calls on Hamiltonians to contact the Ontario Minister of the Environment firstname.lastname@example.org to express their concerns.
