The title above is actually a rhetorical question. The Ontario Ministry of the Environment needed to be told that a very long time ago. As long as municipalities and citizens give the M.O.E. the respect they don't deserve, they will continue as big polluters best friends. The reality is that most of the time the M.O.E. are simply running interference for Chemtura Canada. The Ontario M.O.E. by not denouncing Chemtura on a regular basis are in fact legitimizing them. Chemtura and their consultants routinely pretend that they are following the Ministry's orders when in fact it's all about private negotiations between them.

At the moment it is RAC, TAG and CPAC opposing Chemtura and the Ministry of the Environment. CPAC are informed local citizens, TAG are citizen appointees by Woolwich Township and RAC includes the Region of Waterloo, Grand River Conservation Authority, two Woolwich Councillors as co-Chairs and the TAG Chair plus two members. It is clearly Chemtura and the M.O.E. opposing the will of both the citizens and the will of all the local political groups.

Therefore it's time to stop negotiating and discussing. Give the Ontario M.O.E. an ultimatum. Do what is right, do what you are told by local citizens and government, do what the law demands or fuck off we don't need you. Kick them off RAC and advise them they are not welcome in Woolwich Township. End the charade that they represent the citizens of either Ontario or Woolwich Township. Make it clear publicly that you regard them as inherently corrupt and will no longer deal with them. Period and end of story.
