Air quality expert “deeply disappointed” in Ajax’s modelling strategy

A group called the “Kamloops Moms for Clean Air” have recruited Douw Steyn, a professor of atmospheric sciences at UBC, to better understand how air quality could be affected by the proposed Ajax mine. He was hired to review the mine’s environmental assessment application.

“There are many many holes in terms of the modelling strategy,” he said to CBC radio’s Daybreak Kamloops. “How you do the modelling is really a fairly complicated and technical matter… That’s why I’m pleased that the Kamloops Moms for Clean Air asked me to help them understand it.”
