These Objectives are based on a review of Pollution Control Objectives for the Mining, Mine-milling, and Smelting Industries of British Columbia, experience gained in the application of the 1973 Objectives, and a review of other environmental and technical information developed since the previous Objectives were published. Publicly advertised meetings were held in Nelson, Vernon, Kamloops, Prince George, Courtenay and New Westminster. Subsequently, the Pollution Control Board held a public inquiry during January, 1978, in Victoria. This inquiry heard presentations from individuals, associations, industry, a Crown Corporation and divisions of both the Provincial and Federal Governments (Appendix 3). Transcripts may be examined at all Pollution Control Branch Regional Offices, the B.C. Research Library, and the Provincial Library, Parliament Buildings, Victoria.
The aim of these Objectives is to protect the quality of British Columbia's environment for the benefit of present and future citizens of this Province and Canada. The Objectives provide, firstly, for use of the environment's assimilative capacity within limits which do not lead to unacceptable conditions and, secondly, for adopting realistic cost-benefit pollution control strategies.
