On March 30, 2006, the company was charged by Environment Canada with violating section 23(2) of the ozone-depleting substances regulations under CEPA by selling pressurized containers containing two kilograms or less of any hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC). The charge followed an inspection and subsequent investigation of the company by Environment Canada enforcement officers. The court was scheduled to reconvene on May 2 to set a trial date. More information is available from Dave Aggett at Environment Canada, 902/426-1925.
