Settlement reached in Northstar TCE class action



    CAMBRIDGE, ON, May 22 /CNW/ - A settlement was reached today in a class
action brought on behalf of Cambridge residents against Northstar Aerospace,
Inc. and Northstar Aerospace (Canada) Inc. in respect of alleged contamination
of Trichloroethylene ("TCE") in the proximity of Northstar's Bishop Street
plant.
    Class Counsel are very pleased with the settlement which, if approved by
the Court, will result in significant compensation being distributed to area
residents. "This is an excellent result in a very challenging case" says

compensation based on the extent to which they were adversely impacted by the
contamination".

of the settlement to Class Members and to answer any questions.
