DRYDEN, ON, Feb. 12, 2015 /CNW/ - Domtar is pleased that the Ontario Minister of Environment today has announced an extensive consultation on climate change recognizing the many complexities such policy will seek to address.

"We recognize that climate change policy development is rife with the possibility of unintended consequences," said Bonny Skene, regional public affairs manager.

We look forward to careful consideration of comprehensive, thoughtful, and transparent information exchange as we embark on this journey."
