Specifically, Sealed Air Corporation:

In closing, we urge the Canadian government to:

Environmental laws and regulations should be designed with utmost care to ensure that they are effective in achieving their desired objectives while at the same time avoiding the unintended and unnecessary adverse social and economic impacts. Everyone must do their part to protect the environment and Sealed Air remain dedicated to helping communities and ecosystems flourish worldwide.

We thank you for the opportunity to provide comments on the proposed Order.

Yours sincerely,

Myra H Foster
