Busted: Investigating environmental crimes - A radio show by Lake Ontario Waterkeeper - Jan 28

Have a listen to this week's Living at the Barricades, titled Busted: investigating environmental crimes. It features a discussion of the investigation of the Ministry of Environment into the Harmony landfill. The show is described as:

This week Mark and Krystyn question the existence of a two-tiered law enforcement system for environmental crime: one for “urban” areas and one for “pristine” areas. We revisit an Application for Investigation Lake Ontario Waterkeeper submitted in Cobourg, where the government decided not to take action. We also look at another case in Oshawa, where the Ministry of the Environment has decided to investigate the Harmony landfill.
