THUNDER BAY, ON, May 31, 2011 (TbNewsWatch) -Environmental concerns at an idle local mill are the responsibility of its current and previous owners, a review tribunal says.

The decision was made by the environmental review tribunal, a quasi-judicial body, Friday that environmental risks and clean up at Thunder Bay Fine Papers must be covered by Superior Fine Papers and Cascades Fine Papers Group. The companies had argued they can't afford to meet the conditions after an initial hearing last June.

But Ministry of the Environment spokeswoman Lisa Brygidyr said the ERT decided there wasn't enough evidence to support that claim.
