West Coast Reduction is applying for an amendment to their current permit to the City of Vancouver to INCREASE the amount of pollution they are allowed to emit into East Vancouver to be valid until June 5, 2036 - for 15 YEARS!! 

The fact that West Coast Reduction is looking to INCREASE the pollutants listed below (which all have significant NEGATIVE environmental and health impacts), while East Vancouver is increasing its population (thus increasing the number of people impacted by these contaminants) is concerning.

  1. Ammonia Pollution - from 1.692 tonnes/year to 2.165 tonnes/year
