THE WELLAND RIVER ENVIRONMENTAL SCANDAL
The City of Welland had been dumping raw sewage into the Welland River for years.
Until Fp Welland-Thorold candidate Barry Fitzgerald raised the issue during his campaign and brought the matter to the attention of Ontario's minister of the environment, the matter had never received any significant public exposure. The controversy over why the problem had been ongoing for so long with concentrations of sewage in the river higher than those allowed by Ontario Ministry of the Environment guidelines illustrates the tragic irony that governments are still the worst offenders of anti-pollution laws.
In the following coverage of Freedom Party's first editorially endorsed activity, read the chronicle of how it took a determined effort from Fitzgerald to fix a long-standing environmental problem.
