Arsenic in Rouyn-Noranda: “It’s not as dramatic as some say&raquo ; - François Legault


MONTREAL | François Legault minimizes the risks related to the emission of arsenic into the air in Rouyn-Noranda due to the Horne Foundry. 

“It's not as dramatic as some say it,” said the Prime Minister on Wednesday morning, on the airwaves of 98.5.

The head of the CAQ, who is due to go to Rouyn-Noranda at the end of the day to support his candidate local, says the fate of the Horne Foundry is in the hands of local citizens.

“The company says it, we will not be able, in the short term, to go down to three nanograms (per cubic meter of arsenic). Technically, it's not feasible, what I'm saying, there are 600 direct jobs in Rouyn-Noranda at $100,000 a year, it's up to the people of Rouyn-Noranda to decide.”

According to the outgoing Prime Minister, it is above all not up to Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois to take the decision in place of the citizens.

Recall that the riding of Rouyn-Noranda-Témiscamingue is currently represented by the solidarity Émilise Lessard-Therrien.
