Dear Mr. Editor:
We have again read with interest the articles in the Sun Times and your news article in the Independent and are not sure from what we read if we were at the same council meeting as Mr. Richardson and if we heard his response correctly.
From his response when asked if anything had been decided on the PEG meeting or project he said they were waiting on PEG to contact them, yet Mr. Forte in the Sun Times is saying they are waiting on Council's response. From this we can only assume that one or other of the parties are mistaken in their assumption of who is contacting whom.
Aside from knowing whose move it is next which seems to have been on ongoing problem with this project we are now, yet again, being told that there are projects being negotiated in “China, Europe and South America” now that is a lot of territory and still as vague as ever. Where in China, Europe and South America, From research and information that we have gathered many European countries have stopped construction of incinerators and are banning their use.
So, we are two of “those people” along with many others, the voters of the municipality, who need to be convinced. Mr. Richardson seems to be very aware of the growing opposition in the municipality to incineration or as it is now being called “biodiversion” yet no decision can be reached, there is no “time-line for moving forward” as is noted in your article and as Mr. Richardson states they have to “get a whole bunch of positive reports and very positive information so they have balance”.
We researched very thoroughly all the information available and from our perspective the negatives far outweigh the positives.
Do we want this for our community, NO. Do we want to take a chance on producing three-headed cows and limbless babies as Mr. Forte suggested, but he knows this would not happen, but how does he know, what has he tested? There are no other units out there to do tests on. This is a virtually untested technology because the prototype built did not work properly and as stated in the test report “it is not emission free”. How do you know with certainty that there are no dangers to this community. Would it be better to build this unit and find out a few years from now that “Oh no, it really does cause health concerns just as the literature has stated”.
Even though Mr. Richardson now states it was never intended to burn garbage, that this was a kind of an “oh by the way benefit” which would be profitable for the municipality, if I am not mistaken the idea was to burn our garbage for the next 20 years plus the garbage hauled in from other municipalities and even mine out old landfill sites and burn that. Now we are not going to burn garbage. So what will we be burning next.
What is really interesting is that our own “Burn Bylaw” states “no person shall set a fire that will create smoke or odour as to cause discomfort to persons or cause loss of enjoyment of normal use of property to surrounding residents”. What do you really think an incinerator will do to the people who are residents of the surrounding property?
So, the bottom line Mr. Richardson, “these people who are so adamant against it” do need to be convinced just as the wind turbine people do.
As Mr. Forte said in the article in the Sun Times, “there are a lot of places in Ontario where we can do this” they have presented themselves as astute businessmen so why are they waiting in limbo for Meaford with “these people who just ran amok with some of their presumptions”.
Our question therefore is how long are the people of the municipality going to be held hostage to the whims of PEG and the council before a decision is made? As concern is still very heightened perhaps it would be better to move forward with the Public Meeting, as that is what council seem to require and it would appear PEG is eager to do, sooner rather than later and let us all hear the sales pitch from PEG, let them answer our questions, convince all of us of the validity of their proposal, let the potential developers who are promoting Meaford as the “Playground on Georgian Bay” know what is being proposed, so we can all make an informed decision. Perhaps then you would listen to public opinion, take our concerns to heart and make a decision that is the healthiest one for this community.
Carl & Mary Adams, Meaford
