B.C.’s vanishing hazardous waste database

“Worldwide, waste management companies have become vulnerable to takeover by organized crime or unscrupulous operators who undercut their competitors for contracts and then ‘dispose’ of their waste by illegal means, disappearing toxic sludge much like a mobster gets rid of an associate he has just whacked. British Columbia is not immune to such activity. I know. I know, because on two separate occasions I used that now defunct database to show how two different companies had flagrantly violated provincial rules governing hazardous wastes.”
