CIELAP Releases Poster Showing Pollution Hotspots in Canada

The Canadian Institute for Environmental Law and Policy (CIELAP) has
released a poster showing pollution hotspots throughout Canada.   The
maps and tables on the NPRI 1998 poster provide a summary of data from
the National Pollutant Release Inventory 1998.

The poster is designed to familiarize the general public with the NPRI
and to provide a useful teaching tool for Canadian and World Studies.
We are offering free copies ($5 shipping and handling fee) of the poster
to school boards, environmental organizations and researchers.

Using data from the 1998 National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI),
the poster presents the top on-site releases and off-site transfers of
pollutants by facilities across Canada.  The poster also shows a summary
of releases, transfers and recycling of pollutants by province.

CIELAP, an independent, not for profit, environmental law and policy
research organization is trying to raise public awareness of the NPRI
database and the fate of pollutants from facilities.  If you would like
to order a copy of the NPRI 1998 poster, please contact Kumarie Khadoo
