Well tomorrow's visit to the downtown Kitchener Market came about somewhat indirectly. Dr. Dan Holt and I attended a Council of Canadians meeting in Kitchener last winter and then he was advised recently that they had a table at the kitchener Market tomorrow to hand out literature etc. and that other tables were available. The Market is located on the corner of Eby and King St. on the east side of King St.. The hours that the table is available are from 7 am. to 2 pm.. Well that's going to make for an early day.

I will have my large map of the east side of Chemtura/Lanxess on its' tripod as well as maps and literature handouts. The maps are colour 18" x 11" and display Uniroyal/Chemtura/Lanxess, the Canagagigue Creek and most of Elmira, Ontario. The literature includes Tables of various fish sampled in the Canagagigue Creek and the concentrations of Dioxins, DDT, PCBs and Mercury in their tissues. Many of these are well above criteria and guidelines for the protection of consumers of these fish. There will also be a handout describing the Citizens Public Advisory Committee (CPAC) and the basic environmental problems in Elmira and area. Upcoming public meetings on the subject are listed as well as contact persons for CPAC namely Dr. Holt and myself. Feel free to come out tomorrow and entertain and educate yourselves on this local environmental matter.
