The timing certainly is interesting. This fall we have a provincial election. Chemtura announces that our local supply of in ground Dioxins, courtesy of their Third World waste disposal methods, will remain (in)securely beside the Canagagigue Creek because gosh darn for the approximately fourtieth year in a row, they just don't have the funds in their budget to remove it. Today's K-W Record announces "Agent Orange probe chief picked". This probe headed by Leonard Ritter of the University of Guelph has about a year and a half's work ahead of them. "The panel will determine the scope and scale of the use of 2,4,5-T in Ontario and examine the potential health impacts". If during the course of their investigation this panel decides to examine where the 2,4,5-T and Dioxins came from (Elmira) it could certainly become embarassing for both Chemtura and the Ontario M.O.E. . This is due to their ongoing and long term talents and abilities to ignore the health hazards surrounding the sub surface Dioxins on their property, specifically in the GP1 and GP2 waste pits . Refusing to follow their own Control Order and remove DNAPLS (dense non aqueous phase liquids) is horrendous but refusing to remove buried Dioxins is nothing short of criminal.
