It is time. Especially based upon normal attendance at Woolwich Council meetings. I'm thinking of between two and eight people as "normal" live attendance with of course some rare spectacular turnouts for special delegations and discussions. Delegations by citizens in person are also much better. It's just too easy with virtual meetings for councillors to be less engaged, less curious and less likely to ask questions of the delegate.

Same thing of course with RAC and TAG meetings among others. They desperately need to be live to whip up some public interest. Apathy has reigned for far too long and indeed if TAG want any movement from Lanxess's entrenched "do nothing" position regarding the Canagagigue Creek cleanup they need local supporters present. Also if TAG want any push or pressure to get increased cleanup of the Elmira Aquifers prior to the 2028 deadline, now is the time. 

Otherwise this whole thing is slowly sliding downhill and will end with a whimper rather than a bang. This is exactly what Lanxess and the Ontario Ministry of Environment (MECP) want. This is why DELAY has been their best asset in avoiding proper cleanup of the mess they (Uniroyal/MECP) made through their obfuscation, gross negligence and contempt of the public interest.
