 Well somebody's got to do it and I seem to have been nominated a very long time ago. It's a matter of keeping a written history for the benefit of future generations who may want to know why the contaminated Elmira Aquifers and Creek (Canagagigue) were never cleaned up despite all the talk, all the puffery and all the self-congratulations from polluters with the full assistance of the Ontario Ministry of Environment.

Certainly Dr. Richard Jackson shone a spotlight on M.O.E. corruption. He also shone a spotlight on what he called "public policy" issues. He quickly learned that it was not technical issues with the cleanup so much as politics allowing the polluter to get away with doing so little, so badly. 

I've compiled a list of some of my favourite quotes of Dr. Jackson basically hammering the Ministry of Environment. Most of them were stated at public, in person TAG and RAC meetings held in Woolwich Council Chambers. Minutes were taken both by myself as well as by Lisa Schaefer, Support Specialist. She worked for the mostly corrupt Woolwich Township on behalf of RAC and TAG. All my Blog postings are here and can be accessed via the Archive Section on the right side. I have of course shared my list with CPAC members and more.
