cleanups of orphan sites; 2) a method for selecting sites for cleanup and deciding who would pay; 3) authority for the EPA to clean up sites or identify private parties to do so; and 4) a liability provision for cleanup costs and environmental damages arising from spilled or released toxic materials. Difficulty: Moderate Field - Chapter 18 #21 Learning Objective: 18-05 Assess Canadas policy framework to address clean up of toxic waste sites. 22. No federal legislation specifically covers toxic waste sites. Instead, the federal approach is based on policy outlined by the Treasury Board, rather than in legislation. List the four principles established by the Treasury Board for dealing with this issue. The four guiding principles include: 1) known and suspected sites should be assessed and have the most appropriate and cost-effective cleanup methods applied; 2) the costs of contamination management should be recovered where possible from responsible parties; 3) priority for cleanup should be given to sites which pose the highest ecological and human health risks; and 4) management and remediation efforts should be guided by standards endorsed by the CCME.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
