Hamilton’s Sarcoa Restaurant and Bar is taking the city and the Hamilton Waterfront Trust to court, fighting back against fines and orders to comply. Sarcoa sent out a release today saying they’ve received multiple city fines and complaints about their loud music, but argue their ‘Miami Beach style patio’ was made clear before opening, and was never a hidden intention. They say the Hamilton Waterfront Trust had approved their outdoor music concept when it was first brought up, and their recent complaints and fines are hurting their business. Sarcoa says talks with the city have been unsuccessful, and they have been left with no choice but to take the issue to court.

SAGUENAY, Que. — The federal and Quebec governments are teaming up with a trio of corporate giants from the metals and tech industries to commercialize the world’s first carbon-free aluminum smelting process.Ottawa, Quebec and Apple Inc. are investing in a joint venture between Alcoa Inc. and Rio Tinto Group called Elysis, which will commercialize a process that eliminates greenhouse gas emissions from traditional smelting by instead producing oxygen.Elysis, which expects large-scale deployment of the technology by 2024, will be given a total of $188 million from Alcoa, Rio Tinto, Ottawa, the Quebec government and Apple to develop and license the technology so it can be used to retrofit smelters or build new facilities.The federal and Quebec governments are contributing $60 million each, with the Quebec government getting a 3.5 per cent stake in the venture and Alcoa and Rio Tinto splitting the remaining ownership equally.Alcoa and Rio Tinto will invest $55 million in the project.Apple, which put forth $13 million, helped facilitate the collaboration between Alcoa and Rio Tinto and has vowed to provide technical support as the project progresses.Elysis will have a headquarters in Montreal and a research facility in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, Que. region.
Emergency repairs at the water filtration plant in Port Dover are now complete.Residents and businesses are encouraged to return to their normal water usage routine, bearing in mind that Norfolk has summer seasonal restrictions on outdoor watering in urban areas.“Norfolk County staff thank residents for their patience while they dealt with this unscheduled repair,” public works said this week in a news release.Several weeks ago, Port Dover residents were asked to refrain from unnecessary water use while the county addressed the problem.Before the deficiency was identified, there were already concerns in Port Dover that water use and allocation has outstripped the plant’s capacity to replenish the water tower while maintaining adequate hydrant pressure for fire protection.Earlier this year, Norfolk County imposed a moratorium on new water and sewer allocation until Port Dover’s water capacity concerns are put to rest.With the plant repairs complete, residents and businesses are reminded that – during the summer months – even-numbered addresses on even-numbered days of the month are allowed to water outdoors from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and again from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.The same limitations apply to odd-numbered addresses on odd-numbered days of the month.Bulk water sales have also resumed at the water tower east of the Highway 6 lift bridge.MSonnenberg@postmedia.com
