While the Minutes are not out yet from last Tuesday's Council meeting, nevertheless I've received a report upon comments made in regards to the RAC (Remediation Advisory Committee) meeting back in late March. Apparently Councillor Bauman raised concerns and frustrations with both Lanxess and the Ontario Ministry of Environment. Duh! This is exactly what you were told by each and every CPAC member back in late 2014 and 2015. At that time you lied including using words such as "dysfunctional". Later on you waffled by suggesting that "dysfunctional" wasn't a criticism of the CPAC members it was the reality when the Ministry and Chemtura refused to attend CPAC meetings. Nice. Typical politician's move.

Regardless Mark appears to be stepping up in regards to the Stroh Drain. While it's hard to fully accept Mark's last minute death bed conversion nevertheless it is welcome. The Stroh Drain and area is obvious to anybody with even half a brain and an ounce of honesty. That of course rules out most of our current Woolwich Council. Not all thank goodness although the honest, intelligent ones are a very small minority.

My understanding is that Councillor Patrick Merlihan raised the question with his concerns about the Stroh Drain. Well done Patrick. Then it was Councillor Mark Bauman who picked up the ball and explained that Lanxess and the Ministry of Environment were studiously ignoring the soils, sediments and water in and around the Stroh Drain. Keep in mind that both these corrupt parties (Chemtura & M.O.E.) never admitted or indicated that the Stroh Drain even existed. For over thirty years it has been draining parts of both the Uniroyal/Chemtura/Lanxess property plus the Stroh property and they and the Ontario M.O.E. kept that information hidden. It's been exposed by myself and CPAC for the last 3 1/2 years and the guilty parties continue to do what they do best which is minimize, lie, deflect and always delay, delay, delay.


  1. Difficult to focus on the positives when there are so few. All of this could have and should have been cleaned up twenty years ago. Plus the human deaths due to this air, soil and water pollution should not be forgotten.

  2. Council will only be cooperative and honest after a house cleaning as we had in 2010. M.O.E. initially needs a political house cleaning at the provincial level next month followed by senior resignations and firings at the top.
