A full four months ago, on May 30, the Toronto Star reported, “Maude Barlow, named the United Nations’ senior adviser on water issues and chair of the Council of Canadians, has thrown her energy into the fight (against Site 41), vowing to lead protests at the site throughout the summer. ‘This dump will not open,’ Barlow vowed.”
The Midland Mirror reported yesterday, after County council voted 25-3 on Tuesday to abandon its plans for the controversial dump, that “Regardless of one’s views on Site 41, one must admire the dedication and conviction required to force a group of politicians to change their minds – surely an occurrence as rare as a September snowstorm.”
