My Husband work's at Stelco and he was telling me that on Sunday around 11am they are going to be blowing up an unused furnace.
He said it will be loudest down by Sherman, but it's expected to be heard out in Burlington.
The furnace is by the bay.
So, if you hear a big BANG, don't have a heart attack. It's just Stelco.

Stelco stink

Hey guys,

When I was at the beach strip back in the day, Stelco used to stink real bad. Like a real bad fart. Is it still emitting the same smell? Or has it toned down? I always hear how governments are cracking down on pollution & wondered about stelco.

Stelco and Dofasco are not as bad as when you were around. I guess due to emission controls, cuts in production, they don't have the large work force that they use to have. We do have a new asphalt plant that was built just on the other side of the highway which gives us some new smells, thanks to the Hamilton Port Authority. :mad:
