Here are a couple of upcoming meeting dates.

TAG (Technical Advisory Group) will meet in the Dodie Hummel Room (beside Woolwich Council Chambers)on Thursday November 29 at 6:30 pm.

RAC (Remediation Advisory Committee) will meet in Council Chambers two weeks later on Thursday December 13 at 3 pm.

These are the first public meetings since late September of this year. Sandy's spot in history will be judged harshly as she has not only presided over but in fact enabled this shifting of public consultation, as fraught as it was historically with deceit and corruption, towards less and less meetings per year while increasing the number of private meetings between alleged stakeholders, so called experts and Lanxess and the Ministry of Environment (MECP). She has also presided over and enabled the absolute politicization of public consultation. This she has done by allowing the polluter to absolutely exercise a veto over certain citizens participation whom he the polluter can not control via bribery, intimidation, pressure, or prevarication. Public consultation determined by whom is acceptable, amenable, or agreeable to the polluter and his supporters is not public consultation. It should also be a lights flashing, horns blaring indictment of the two citizens long favoured by Uniroyal/Chemtura for their private, backroom deal making, not always in the public interest. The fact that the one is a former long time councillor who also ran for mayor should also be a dead give away. Strange isn't it that other than the 2010-2014 Council all the others over all were Uniroyal Chemical's best friends.
