KUDOS to ArcelorMittal Dofasco!

On Friday, I posted some video footage showing pretty horrible emissions coming from one of ArcelorMittal's steel coil forklifts. The problem was serious enough that the company's coil yard fronting on to Burlington Street was a hazy mess of emissions. The company's General Manager of Environment, Jim Stirling told me he would look into the problem. A ride past this am confirmed that the problem has been resolved. Nice job ArcelorMittal - thanks for taking swift action on this problem. Hopefully timely maintenance of equipement like this forklift will prevent these kinds of issues in the future. WHAT YOU CAN DO This positive outcome proves that, as community members, we can have an impact. If you ever see a problem at ArcelorMittal or any other local industrial facility, be sure to take the time to observe, document and report the problem. In order to report issues to ArcelorMittal Dofasco you can call (905) 544-3761 or email
