So I took a bit of a break with this blog because of the provincial election here in Ontario. For those of you that don’t know, the Liberal government had been in power for 15 years. It was time for a change for many reasons but mostly because power held too long is not good for those in power nor for those under that power.
On Thursday, thanks to old election policies, the Progressive Conservatives gained that power here in the province. I’m not sure what this is going to look like for our water situation but we did have assurances from Doug Ford More Political Rumblings; an Update (leader of the PC party and now premier elect) that should he come to power he will call for a proper health hazard investigation of the sediments in our well.
I am not holding my breath.
There might be a new premier and minister of the environment but all the people that can directly help us are bureaucrats that still sit in the MOECC site offices in Windsor and Sarnia and in the public health offices of Chatham-Kent.
So I guess this post is not so much a news update but a recharge as we wait and see what the new government will (or won’t) deliver for us here in Chatham township.
