This is the typical response from professional manipulaters and deceivers namely "I don't know or I've never heard of it.". This was the answer given by Chemtura at the last CPAC meeting when SWAT team member (& CPAC nominee) Susanna Meteer asked them about a remediation method referred to as either STAR or smouldering self-sustaining combustion. Similarily our Ontario Ministry of the Environment sat silent while the discussion and questions took place. This silence while technically not lying most certainly indicated either gross ignorance or gross deception on their part. I've got news for Chemtura and the M.O.E.. You deserve no more respect from CPAC & SWAT then you are willing to give. Lies of either omission or commission are disrespectful and insulting.

It has taken me a very long time to understand the contempt that both Chemtura and the M.O.E. have for the public. Yes they try to hide their contempt but third parties such as Woolwich Council need to grow up a little on this matter. For Woolwich Council or anyone else to attempt to stifle or moderate aggressive questioning is counterproductive. For Woolwich Council to get hard nosed and strict about "Codes of Conduct" for their citizen volunteers while the other parties (Chemtura/CRA/M.O.E.) ignore them at will is counterproductive and hypocritical. Your citizen volunteers expose themselves to the abuse of their provincial government (M.O.E.) via misdirection, backroom deals and blatant lying (no leakage from GP1 & 2) and then you want to criticize them when they go on the attack. Caspar Milquetoast is just dandy when you are dealing with honourable, ethical people but less effective when dealing with either sociopaths or pyscopaths.

Both the M.O.E. and Chemtura are supposed to be experts in their fields. For Chemtura who send an environmental engineer to all CPAC meetings it is to say the least difficult to believe that they had never heard of smouldering self-sustaining combustion. Ten minutes on the Internet has shown numerous scholarly articles on the subject. Reading even a couple to date has given me an appreciation for this emerging cleanup technology. The Chemtura site may be the perfect location for this kind of cleanup. Possibly it isn't but we need to know why not. For the two guilty parties responsible for shutting down our water supply; burying your heads in your contaminated soil is inexcusable.
