Reader Proud of Meaford's Stance on Nuclear Waste

E-mail Print PDF

Editor,

Meaford joins Blue Mountains on Nuclear Wastes. Last month July 28, the Municipality of Meaford passed a Resolution NOT TO SUPPORT the Deep Geological Repository (DGR) for (low and intermediate level nuclear wastes). The plan by Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) is to bury nuclear wastes 560 metres deep and 1.2 km from Lake Huron, a source of fresh water for more than 40 million people living around the Great Lakes in Canada and the United States.

Before my deputation to Meaford council, I have submitted many documents about nuclear wastes in Canada and around the world. What was disturbing were two recent discoveries- First, was Mr. frank Greeningl letter to the Joint Review Panel (JRP) chaired by Ms. Stella Swanson. Mr. Greening with a PhD in chemistry worked for Ontario Hydro and Ontario Power Generation (OPG) for more than 30 years as their Chemist. He stated that the inventory of nuclear wastes were significantly underestimated.

Reader Not Impressed With Quick Municipal Response to New OPP Pricing

E-mail Print PDF

Editor,

An interesting article appeared in The Meaford Independent on August 18 written by Stephen Vance entitled “Municipality Has First Look at New OPP Billing Model”. It reports that Darcy Chapman, treasurer of Meaford, released a statement to the news media on Friday 15 August after apparently receiving information on Thursday 14 August concerning a proposed new billing model from the OPP. 

The facts reported may or may not be accurate and Mr. Chapman's figures are certainly questionable and open to interpretation but I would like to commend, in fact praise, the speed and commitment of staff members in receiving, assimilating, digesting, preparing and distributing their interpretation of this alleged OPP report. All in less than 36 hours!

Editor,

Last month I sent in a letter to the editor that you published regarding the theft of the donation box at our charity store, The Cat's Meow, in Meaford.

I would appreciate it if you could print this follow-up letter to the editor, thanking people for stepping up and donating.

Thank you to the good people of Meaford

Early last month, someone stole the donation box in the Cat's Meow store on Boucher Street, off Sykes, the retail store of the Clarksburg Cat Shelter.
