The Green Party of Québec raised concerns about a property on which PCBs were illegally stored and where oil containing PCBs had leaked into the soil. Although the site was partially remediated, PCB-contaminated soil remains on site and there’s evidence neighbouring properties are also contaminated with PCBs. The Party launched a website, decontaminatepointe-claire.org, to provide information on the property and a petition calling for new regulations to let the government act quickly to clean up spills and contaminated sites.
