 First of all I've been reading the monthly Uniroyal/Crompton/Chemtura/Lanxess Progress Reports for let's see, maybe thirty some years now. Some of the longer term TAG members have been reading them for maybe 7 1/2 years. I'm not including Susan Bryant here because there is no excuse for her. Other TAG members have been allegedly reading them for one, two or three years. There is a ton of history that most of them do not know. There are a ton of promises from the Min. of Environment (MOE/MECP) and Uniroyal/Crompton/Chemtura/Lanxess that they are unaware of. 

The other problem for TAG is that a few years back the TAG Chair, Tiffany Svensson, appointed TAG member Linda Dickson to present the highlights of each  month's Progress Reports to her TAG colleagues. Of course this is almost inviting the others not to bother reading it because they know Linda will and report to them. 

Finally let me be clear. Linda is in the similar boat i.e. lack of decades of background and history as the rest of the TAG members. I have no reason to doubt Linda's honesty or integrity but yes I do doubt that she is fully aware of all the ramifications of various failures, highlighted or not, within the Progress Reports.  This has always been the plan of the polluter, their "regulator" and some of the corrupt politicians along the way.
