Further to my email to you last week, take notice that I am still waiting to hear from you, when will the chemical tank farm be removed from our waterfront?
Construction at the site continued all weekend despite city issued “Stop Work Orders” and continued widespread public calls for work to stop. All of our civic leaders have delivered the same message — NO TANKS.
Our kids are taught in school that bullying is wrong and yet our entire community is being bullied by the federal government and their heavy-handed tactics.
In the spirit of co-operation, I offered to move the #occupycornwall HQ however as of this time I have not received a reply in regards to my request. When will this tank farm be removed?
I require a written response to this email by no later than 4:00 pm tomorrow. Failure to reply in writing will result in an escalation of our peaceful protest until we find out when this chemical storage tank farm will be removed from our waterfront. Our community needs to know what we are dealing with.
I want to be very clear, if I am ordered in writing by our city police to move the #occupycornwall HQ, I will comply, however if Transport Canada tells me to move, I will not comply until we have an answer in writing from them.
I remain, yours in public service,
Mark A. MacDonald
