Government gives go-ahead to Gaspé cement plant

mcinnis-cement.jpgThe big cement plant in Port Daniel is going to be built. After a few weeks of hesitation, the new Couillard government has confirmed what the old Marois government announced in January -- a $1 billion project and no environmental hearings.  

André Belisle, President of the Quebec Association against atmospheric pollution, tells our Glenn Wanamaker why he has major concerns over the project. Listen here.

We also hear from Michael McSweeney, President of the Cement Association of Canada. He weighed in on the issue back in February as well.
