Covanta fails clean air test. No surprise.

Dear Editor,

Durham Region’s incinerator is a failure. U.S.A. Covanta fails the incinerator testing, but will try again.

Please give me a break, they will eventually pass, and then just go ahead and burn whatever they want since tests are not ongoing. Residents will be exposed (and already have been) to dangerous by-products of burning garbage.

Mirka Januszkiewicz, the region’s director of waste management says it’s safe, yet Health Canada says its above acceptable levels.

I believe Health Canada over Januszkiewicz’s personal vested opinion.

I also want to know how the late fees are coming?

And the total cost? It’s well known this project is way over budget.

This project has been an embarrassment to Durham.
