    It's just terrible what happened in the town, thanks for keeping us up-to-date. Unfortunately I don't think the townspeople will be happy until heads roll. In particular I think they want to see the owner the mall go to jail.
    Energy flows where attention goes...

    Re: Elliot Lake Ontario Canada Algo Centre Mall Roof Collapses Saturday June 23rd 2012

    Here's what I've gathered from the past week, plus my own thoughts on things following.

    From the Globe and Mail:

    As Staff Insp. Neadles helplessly explained Wednesday, “When the final decision was made to leave the building [by whom, he didn’t say], I didn’t have the equipment to continue.” He also explained that he had to seek permission from the provincial safety commission before he could call in heavy equipment. By the time it arrived, it was Tuesday afternoon.

    I have no idea what difference that equipment made. But it seems fair to assume that if matters had been left in the hands of the rescue team and bureaucrats, those two bodies would still be lying in the rubble.
    Toronto Sun June 30th:
    OTTAWA - An internationally recognized rescue expert says he was turned away from the flattened mall disaster in Elliott Lake.
    John Green, managing director of Ottawa-based P.R.E.P. International, has contributed or led rescue efforts in Japan, Haiti and Ground Zero following 911.
    He got a call from a resident of Elliott Lake on June 23 -- 35 minutes after the collapse -- asking him to bring a team to help with the rescue effort. Instead of simply heading out, he decided to try and contact the local fire department and the Ontario Provincial Police. He left several messages and eventually heard back from the OPP on Monday morning.
    “We had called them about eight or nine times Monday morning,” he said. “We called everybody we could.”
    Around 11 a.m., an officer told them there was no harm in heading out. Green and his crew arrived in Elliott Lake at 7 p.m. and were told, “we’ve been waiting for you.”
    But, two hours earlier, labour ministry officials had called off the rescue operation.
    Green was told to leave.
    Regardless, he waited around and watched as the crowd grew more and more agitated. From his experience, and in examining the collapse from behind the barricade, Green described the situation as “a typical building rescue.”
    He claims to have done rescue efforts at 1,100 buildings -- upwards of 30 of those, similar to the one in Elliott Lake.
    “This is the worst type,” he said.
    He believes he could have helped with the rescue and that officials spent more effort analyzing the situation when they should have been taking action.
    “It’s disappointing,” he said. “You either manage the risk or let the risk manage you. They let the risk manage this project.”
    Green said if he had it to do over again, he wouldn’t have sought permission, he would have just gone in.
    “I’ll never do that again,” he said.
    It’s exactly like Charles Addler put it, why the hell did ‘daddy’ need to be called before the ‘children’ were able to be saved, or in this case, attempted to be saved? It should have been get the kids out, then find the dad, not the other way around.

    Joe Warmington- Toronto Sun
    As the firefighters’ credo states: “I want to fill my calling and, to give the best in me, to guard my neighbour and protect his property, and, if according to (God’s) will, I have to lose my life.”
    The “I will stand down because some pencil pusher says it’s too dangerous and we will sit around and do nothing” line does not seem to be in there.
    If Canada is now a country where a rescue worker has to sign a waiver to be brave, then it should also be a country that will not stand in the way of true heroes who don’t need medals to at least try.
    Not everybody is a quitter.
    “The hero is commonly the simplest and obscurest of men” is what 19th century American author Henry David Thoreau wrote.
    However, in Elliot Lake, it seems the dead may be found before the heroes ever are.


    There has been numerous banks willing to help out with loans and deferred payment plans for those who have suffered losses from the destruction of this mall and their businesses. There are funds setup through many different banks for people to donate to all across canada to help the citizens of Elliot Lake get back on their feet.

    No one is allowed back inside the mall to collect their personal belongings, which is understandable. But the library was in there, so what is happening with all those books? I really hope that SOMEONE has the sense to save the books before the demolition of the building. The library was not affected by the section of roof/parking lot that fell. Also, what about the merchandise in places like Zellers? What is to come of that stuff? Surely, because of this that stuff is written off when it comes to insurance, so why can't things be salvaged and given to the community in their time of need?

    I'm just throwing this stuff out there. Anything non-perishable should be saved (even if it's by those who ARE allowed in the building, cops, etc.) and be donated to those in need. It's ALL written off anyway.

    The funeral was held yesterday (July 4th) for Doloris Perizzolo, and a memorial service is scheduled for Monday (July 9th) for Lucie Aylwin. The attendance was outstanding for Dolores, and I'm sure the attendance for Lucie will be at least equal on Monday.

    I realize I am beginning to ramble on when it comes to this topic, but it's difficult when there is so much information and there are so many questions that remain unanswered.

    Again, I will continue to update when necessary, as new or different information is released, or at least that I find out about.

    The unfortunate deaths of these two women WILL lead to disasters being handled properly in the future with teams that know what they are doing and can go into the unsafe situations and make them safe within hours of the event occurring, and SAVE lives instead of delaying and cleaning up the remains and salvaging cadavers.

    More to come as I receive the information.
    Go through your life with love and light, and nothing can truly harm you.

    Re: Elliot Lake Ontario Canada Algo Centre Mall Roof Collapses Saturday June 23rd 2012

    So, as of right now, July 7, 2012, an official criminal investigation has begun. The police are working to find who is at fault and lay charges.

    Also, for the 30 or so business owners, the insurance is delaying the payouts necessary for these people to locate their businesses. Yves Berube, who owned a jewelry store in the Algo Centre Mall, talked to reporters and let them know the insurance situation for himself, but the story is the same all across the board. No one is allowed in the building because of ongoing investigations by the police and the province. The building has not yet been “condemned”, so as far as insurance goes, until that happens, the stuff is still there and available. Typical insurance stance. There are lots of words that I have for insurance crooks, but being of the good nature that I am, I will leave it at “crooks”.

    So, these people are out of work, and temporarily out of business, but according to insurance rules (which don’t make a lick of sense), nothing is lost because the businesses still stand and it doesn’t matter that they cannot be accessed ever again.

    My opinion is that of, payout the people now, don’t wait until the building is condemned. No one will ever be going back in there and they know it.

    Another thing that they SHOULD do, but wont, and I mentioned it before, those who ARE allowed in the mall area should have a crew designated to salvage what they can from the shops that have nothing to do with the investigation area and donate the written off, or soon to be written off items, anything non-perishable, and give it to those who need it. I don’t see the problem with that and I don’t know why no one else but me is thinking that.

    Well, that’s today’s update.
    Go through your life with love and light, and nothing can truly harm you.

    Re: Elliot Lake Ontario Canada Algo Centre Mall Roof Collapses Saturday June 23rd 2012

    Well, it's been about a week and a half since I last updated this, but here's what I've managed to compile from various news sources, as well as my own input here and there. I have been very busy, so I have not been able to update this thread until today. There is a lot more information surfacing out there about things like the engineering company who “inspected” the building, different plans set up for some of the stores, all kinds of support from other towns, etc. I will try to cover as many of these things as I can find the information on.

    To start, there is this letter that was written to the Elliot Lake Standard (newspaper).

    I came to Elliot Lake 14 plus years ago, even back then there were many signs of problems in our mall.
    Pails, buckets and tubs, in all the stores and everywhere, including our library, which lost many books over the years because of the water problem.
    Now I’m not an engineer, but in any high school you learn about water turning to ice. Ice being one of the strongest elements in the world, it freezes and expands, it thaws and contracts.
    This has been happening to all the walls and ceilings in that building since before I arrived, and from what I’ve been told, since the day it was built. Having the mall maintenance people on the roof with bags of cement, pails of sand and tar, (which I saw, not long ago) was not going to fix it.
    You have a poll, with one question and room for three answers (a set-up). I will answer,
    Yes, we need a mall. What about all the people that don’t have cars to go out of town?
    No, we don’t want it where it now stands. Even if it is completely rebuilt, which it would have to be. Build it on flat land, like the new No Frills and no roof top parking.
    Another thing, I was in the Bank of Nova Scotia just before they moved, the walls had to be removed and, underneath was just black with mold. Not a healthy place to work. A good reason to move.
    I know a lot of people will say, ‘If they rebuild there, I won’t go.’ They wouldn’t feel comfortable about the surroundings or it’s history. Can’t blame them.
    Thank you for letting me have my say. I’m sure you will be swamped with mail.
    Carol Laronde,
    Elliot Lake
    I’m sure most of the town feels the same as the woman who wrote this letter, and I felt it was an important enough statement to bring into this report.

    5 defendants have been named thus far in the $30-million class-action lawsuit for what happened to the Algo Centre Mall. Those 5 defendants are as follows: M.R. Wright & Associates the engineering firm (from Sault Ste. Marie, ON) responsible for the latest inspections of the Algo Centre Mall; Eastwood Mall Inc. the company that owns the Algo Centre Mall; Robert (Bob) Nazarian head of Eastwood Mall Inc. because he knew about the state of the building and did nothing substantial to fix the problems; the Province of Ontario because the Ministry of Labour who came out to inspect health issues failed to catch the problems related to the Occupational Health and Safety Act; and The City of Elliot Lake for not making sure that proper inspections were being carried out and did not force action to be taken even though they had the knowledge of the disrepair and the power to do something about it.

    From Moose FM 94.1 Algoma Manitoulin radio station:
    Jack and Elaine Quinte, of Hungry Jacks, are leading the lawsuit on behalf of the directly affected residents. The lawsuit was filed on Friday, July 6th and more details are expected in the weeks to come.
    Lawyers for this case are demanding action to be taken immediately in this court case and get the people of this town results soon, rather than years from now. Premier Dalton McGuinty has been asked to help in this regard. If the people keep on him, maybe something will happen, but if they don’t, god only knows if they will see the end of this anytime soon. Thousands of people are suffering right now and that would greatly be relieved if McGuinty acts for the people.

    From BayToday.ca on the $2-million fund for the businesses to get back up and running, the McGuinty government had this to say:

    We’ve also approved a two-year, $2-million emergency business continuity fund through the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation so the City of Elliot Lake can help displaced businesses get re-established as quickly as possible and advance other priority economic development projects.
    The public library is trying to get space in the White Mountain building on Spine Rd, but is being delayed in achieving this space because of an elevator which is in disrepair so the second floor unit which the library wants cannot be accessed until that elevator is fixed. Even though there may be stairs, which I don’t see stated, the space will not be approved for use as the library while the elevator is unsafe to use.

    There is talk that the criminal investigation by the police and the public inquiry investigation will be in conflict as they are happening at the same time. So then why the heck can’t they just keep them separate? It can’t be all that difficult to do so. The people that are involved in the criminal investigation should have no knowledge of what is going on with the inquiry. It CAN be done.

    The judge appointed in this case has been named. Justice Paul Belanger from Ottawa will be leading the public inquiry into the partial collapse of the Algo Centre Mall roof. However, it has been stated that the judge will report his findings after 1 year of investigation. Just more and more red tape. I understand that they need to be thorough, but 1 year? Seriously? I don’t think it takes that long to do a thorough investigation. But then again, how can I know that, I’ve never investigated anything of this nature in my life. It just seems like an awfully long time. Better to be thorough than to miss something, especially when that something could be important.

    Then you have these people fighting to get the funding back that has been cut for emergency teams like Heavy Urban Search And Rescue (HUSAR). What the heck do they need the funding for if they are useless? They have proven themselves (in my eyes) to be over “trained” and clueless, inexperienced, useless teams. There are other teams out there, like the one from Ottawa that WAS THERE at the scene of this collapse, that ARE experienced, and HAVE the proper and necessary equipment needed to handle just such a situation. So, I personally don’t see the need to fund such teams as the government and police run HUSAR. They obviously don’t know what they’re doing and/or NEED the government’s approval to rescue. That’s what I observed from this tragedy.

    For 256 former employees of various shops in the Algo Centre Mall, No Frills has donated $50 gift cards for each. Aslo, Loblaws is making a donation of $5,000 to the Elliot Lake Emergency Foodbank.

    On a similar note, Foodland has gotten approval to open a temporary location inside Collins Hall provided they restore the hall to its condition prior to the store renovating for use as a grocery store. I think that’s reasonable. Don’t you? Sobeys is looking to get in to be able to start converting Collins Hall into a grocery store by August 27th, but rezoning needs to be completed before then. That’s just silly in my opinion. Who cares what the area is zoned for. Just let them in to use it, after all, it’s only temporary. This IS an emergency after all. Things are being sped along to get this done as quickly as possible.

    There was an environmental assessment done back in 2005 regarding the asbestos used in the construction of the mall. The report can be found at the following link. If the link should become invalid, images of the document can be posted.
    Elliotlakescan

    It has been stated that particles in the air during the time of collapse contained much asbestos and the long term effects of those who were in the mall at the time the roof caved in as well as those outside the mall during the tear down of the building to reach the victims may be mild to severe. Those who directly breathed in the dust at the time of the roof collapse are at the most risk for severe long term effects from the asbestos.

    Police are asking anyone with any information about this case of the neglected building and those involved to come forward. The OPP have a dedicated phone line available for any information that may be important. That phone number is: 1-855-677-4636. Please, if you have any information, whether you think it’s relevant or irrelevant, it couldn’t hurt to present it to the police for the criminal investigation. You never know, that little tidbit of information that you’re holding onto could make or break the case against the negligent people responsible for the deaths of 2 well-known, well-loved ladies of Elliot Lake.

    The M.R. Wright and Associates Co. Ltd. Had reported to the manager of the mall in a letter dated May 3rd 2012 about the inspection done on Thursday April 12, 2012 on their findings. I’ll link to the Global News page with the document, but again, if it happens to disappear, I have the PDF I can have available for viewing.

    Global News | Interactive graphic: Elliot Lake mall rust and water damage prior to collapse

    It would seem that these “engineers” missed the damage to the steel beams and the concrete overhead. That “oops” cost 2 people their lives, and that number could have easily been much higher. There were a lot of people in that mall at the time of collapse.

    As it would have it, this engineering firm is in a lot of hot water. As it turns out, back in 2010 engineers at this firm, who declared the Elliot Lake Algo Centre Mall “structurally sound”, were found guilty of “professional misconduct”. Wow, gee, no surprises there eh? Not surprising all this dirty laundry is coming to the surface. I can suspect that we will be seeing more and more information like this surface as things continue to be investigated, not only by the labor board and the police, but by investigative reporters trying to get to the bottom of this and report to the public.

    On a positive note, Identification replacement fees are being waived for those who lost their ID within the mall when the roof came crashing down June 23rd. All government issued IDs will be issued for free. As it should be. Why the heck should these people have to pay for something that they had no control over losing? They shouldn’t, so good for the government for doing it for free.

    If and when, which it is seeming unlikely, the mall is deemed safe to enter and is no longer considered a crime scene the people will be allowed in to collect their things. This includes remnants of loved ones. There were at least 30 urns in the funeral home that was inside the mall. Even though the entrance to the funeral home is on the outside of the mall, no one is allowed near the building to collect the ashes of their loved ones until the mall is deemed safe to enter. The police do not want to risk anymore lives for fear that other parts of the mall may collapse. There are many people without closure for the deaths of their loved ones because they cannot retrieve the ashes. It’s sad, sure, but there is no immediate need to get the cremated remains out of a building. That may sound heartless to those grieving, but it’s true.

    The cities of Timmins and North Bay have offered books of condolences from the people of the two towns to the people of Elliot Lake. It’s a nice way of showing how Northern Ontarians stand together for each other.

    All over Ontario, and I’m sure all over Canada, people are going over in their minds what would happen in a larger emergency. What WOULD happen in an ACTUAL crisis? I believe that if we let our government handle the situation, we’re all doomed. We need people helping people and not being allowed or disallowed by the red tape of the government to take care of things of this nature. The government run operations can’t handle small scale disasters such as the roof collapse in Elliot Lake, how can the possibly handle large scale disaster if such a thing should happen?

    Although I am outraged, much like the rest of the population at the outcome of the “rescue operation”, it is in my opinion, as a psychic, that even if they got in there right away as soon as they heard Lucie tapping and making noise, she would have died from her injuries. It was made apparent to me when I felt her take her last breaths that she was too severely injured to recover, and she knew it. I also believe that Dolores was most likely killed instantly or at least died within very few hours of the roof falling. It is sad to say and sad to hear, but this is the way things are meant to be. It HAD to be those 2 ladies, unfortunately for all those that loved them and will greatly miss them. It couldn’t have been anyone else. This tragedy will hopefully produce proper action in the future so that no one else may needlessly die in such a horrific event.

    Once again, I will end here, but will report more in time as things unfold.
    Go through your life with love and light, and nothing can truly harm you.

    Re: Elliot Lake Ontario Canada Algo Centre Mall Roof Collapses Saturday June 23rd 2012

    As we're approaching the 1 year anniversary of this tragic event, I am working on putting together as much information as I can regarding the happenings over the past year (from where I left off), up to where things stand now after the investigation, the take-down/removal of the mall building, as well as the court proceedings/hearings so far. There's been a lot going on with the engineer(s) who signed off on the safety of the building, etc, etc.

    One thing that I will say, the town of Elliot Lake, Ontario is devastated by all this. Not only did they lose two of their citizens, their friends, their family, they also lost a big piece of themselves, and they lost a lot of trust.

    Like I said, I will be gathering what I can from what has happened so far and I will be posting all that here. It's been a busy year and I haven't had a chance to get back to this in a while, but with the anniversary coming up, I feel the need to take the time out of other things and get back to this.

    More to follow shortly.
    Go through your life with love and light, and nothing can truly harm you.

    Re: Elliot Lake Ontario Canada Algo Centre Mall Roof Collapses Saturday June 23rd 2012

    It has been 1 year since the tragic cave-in of the roof of the Algo Centre Mall in Elliot Lake, Ontario, where 2 women were killed.

    I want to make sure to post the video recreation of what happened (which contains actual footage of the collapse from the roof-deck) before I sum up what has gone on with the investigations and anything else that is/has been happening in the town since this tragic preventable event.

    Here is that video: "NORR Report, Appendix, Exhibit 03141-NL_E000013115"




    From this point, I’m going to try to do my best to summarize what has gone on since I last posted in July. Please bear with me, this is going to be quite long, so I will be splitting it into multiple posts for ease of reading, and it may take me a couple of days to complete.

    Re: Elliot Lake Ontario Canada Algo Centre Mall Roof Collapses Saturday June 23rd 2012

    The Report:

    • As of July 18th 2012, rezoning of the land occupied by Collins Hall was applied for to accommodate Foodland (says 1 report), Sobeys (says another report) after the collapse of the mall where the store was located. The zoning order has since been signed. Collins Hall is to accommodate the lost grocery store that was located within the mall.
    • Ontario (The McGuinty Government) set up a 2-year $2-million fund to help the families and businesses affected by the collapse so that the people of Elliot Lake could have their basic needs met (which were removed by the mall collapse).

    “Our government is committed to helping the people of Elliot Lake rebuild and revitalize their community. We are helping families access the necessities for day-to-day living.”
    Kathleen Wynne
    Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing
    “It is gratifying to see the province move so quickly to help the people of Elliot Lake. This is an important step for our community.”
    Rick Hamilton
    Mayor, Elliot Lake
    “The government is helping Elliot Lake turn challenge into opportunity. The business recovery activities now underway will require a tremendous team effort from everyone involved. Our funding will bring extra human resources and a youthful perspective to the work ahead.”
    Rick Bartolucci
    Minister of Northern Development and Mines and Chair of the NOHFC
    “I am very pleased that the NOHFC is supporting our important business revitalization activities through its internship program. This additional resource will greatly benefit our Economic Development Advisory Committee (EDAC) and the experience is likely to be second to none for the intern.”
    Rick Hamilton
    Mayor, City of Elliot Lake

    • Other communities and their businesses contribute their own funds toward the disaster recovery for the Elliot Lake people. Desjardins in Sudbury contributed $1,550 to the Elliot Lake Relief Fund and the members are encouraged to donate at their local branches.
    • From what I understand from the article found here: http://www.northernlife.ca/news/loca...e-sudbury.aspx, there were robots available in Sudbury from Greg Baiden and his business named Penguin. These robots could go in and assess the situation to determine whether or not it was safe to send anyone in, and if not safe, the robots could do the work of humans. That’s what they’re designed to do. The robots are designed for the mines, and they are equipped with high-definition cameras. Instead of allowing the use of these robots, HUSAR was allowed to continue their less-than-half-assed job of “search and rescue”, deeming the whole place unsafe until the remaining (at the time) survivor, perished in the rubble. Thumbs up their butts, that’s what I see.
    • Anyone who lost their government issued documents inside the mall at the time of the collapse (driver’s licenses, vehicle registrations, outdoor’s cards (with hunting and fishing licenses), Ontario photo IDs) can have those documents re-issued at no cost if they haven’t already done so. Anyone who paid for the replacements will be reimbursed. Afterall, why shouldn’t they get replacements for free, it’s the partially the government’s fault the mall collapsed in the first place.
    • Lucie Aylwin’s family has set up a bursary in Lucie’s name for Elliot lake students who wish to study at College Boreal where Lucie worked. The bursary is called the “Lucie Aylwin Memorial Bursary”. Donations for the bursary can be made at College Boreal by calling (705) 560-6673.
    • Blind River (a neighboring town) held a barbecue (August 4th) entitled “Blind River Helping Friends of Elliot Lake, to help raise funds for the town.

    “The event, titled Friends of Blind River Helping Friends of Elliot Lake, will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Aug. 4. There will be live music on stage, as well as Karaoke, pony rides from Rocking Horse Stables, singer and guitarist Fern McCoy, a yard sale, donation jars, water balloons and kite flying. And of course, there will be barbecued hamburgers, hot dogs, cold pop, bottled water and frozen treats.
    For anyone who wishes to donate goods for the yard sale, call 705-356-7683.”
    • July 20th, there’s reports of class-action lawsuit to seek compensation for the victims of the tragedy of the collapse of the mall’s rooftop parking lot above the escalators. The lawsuit would name the mall’s owners (Nazarian), the engineering company who did an inspection of the mall recently (and deemed it safe), as well as the City of Elliot Lake. The defendants “knew or ought to have known that the deterioration of the mall’s structure posed a serious safety risk”, and nothing was done to prevent the collapse. (Court proceedings are still taking place now – June 19th 2013)
    • Naturally, the rotting food from the grocery store was attracting all kinds of wild creatures, rodents and bears, etc. This was 1 month after the collapse and closure of the mall. The concern over this is that the rodents would spread to the other businesses in the area and not stay contained within the wreckage of the Algo Center Mall. Apparently Algoma Public Health said they would keep a bait station running until the rotten food could be removed. Don’t know if this happened, but probably.
    • July 19th 2012, The OPP (Ontario Provincial Police) Urban Search and Rescue, Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, Explosive Response Team (UCRT) started securing the structure and beginning their criminal investigation. This began with the removal of the remaining vehicles from the rooftop parking lot. The OPP hired independent 3rd-party engineers and contractors (NORR Limited and Priestly Demolition) to assist with the investigation. (NORR provided the report in the video above which included security camera footage of the collapse from the rooftop, entitled “NORR Report….” Ontario’s Ministry of Labor (MOL) overseeing the activities. At this point, OPP ask anyone with any information great or small come forward and let them know so that proper steps can be taken against responsible parties. Forensic Identification unit from Sault St. Marie was on scene to assist with the investigation.
      “Anyone with information about the roof collapse can call 855-677-4636.”
    • It was said that about 60% of the retail businesses were affected by this collapse, as they were located inside the Algo Center Mall.
    • The reports of what happened on the tragic afternoon of June 23rd 2012 should be known no later than January 2014, according to Commissioner Paul Belanger who is in charge of the probe into the events that caused the collapse and what was done regarding it. I’m sure the investigation will be lengthy, and it should be. There is much to find out, and we are all waiting on the results. Even when it is all said and done, there will still be many people not satisfied with the findings. This inquiry kicked off around the 19th or 20th of July 2012.



    I’ll end here for this post; I think it’s pretty lengthy at this point. I will continue into the next post, and more posts to come after that. I’ve got a lot of information to sift through to get up to date.
    Go through your life with love and light, and nothing can truly harm you.

    Here's what I just came across. Day 57 of the inquiry, court notes.

    I'm going to see if I can find any more of these. If so, I will post them here. This will help for the summation of this all.

    Here's a list of transcripts right from Paul Belanger's site for the inquiry. So, pretty much right from the source itself.

    I'm just going to put the link to the page with all the transcripts listed so far.

    This was posted in the Elliot Lake's Roof Support Group on facebook. I thought it right that it be shared here too.

    On Monday July 8, 2013 the Inquiry in Elliot Lake resumes after a 3 week break. Mayor
    Rick Hamilton of Elliot Lake is scheduled to testify on this day. There will be a
    demonstration in Elliot Lake on this day at both the location of the inquiry at 1:00 PM to
    2:00 PM and at City Hall from 2:30 to 4:00. This is a peaceful demonstration. It is not
    against the inquiry.

    PRESS RELEASE
    A YEAR HAS PASSED AND NOTHING HAS CHANGED FOR THE
    CITIZENS OF ELLIOT LAKE. IT'S BUSINESS AS USUAL. THE SAME
    PEOPLE ARE RUNNING THE CITY IN THE SAME MANNER AS IF NOBODY
    DIED, AS IF NOBODY WAS INJURED, AS IF NOBODY IS AT FAULT. WE'VE
    WAITED A YEAR FOR PEOPLE WITH HONOUR AND INTEGRITY TO
    STAND UP. THEY HAVE NOT DONE SO AND SO WE WAIT NO MORE.
    THE CITIZENS OF ELLIOT LAKE HAVE GROWN WEARY OF YEARS
    OF SECRET MEETINGS HELD BY OUR COUNCIL. WHILE WE HAVE
    TRIED TO BECOME INVOLVED IN OUR CITY, WE ARE DISMISSED AS
    MALCONTENTS, NAY SAYERS AND PEOPLE WHO KNOW NOTHING.
    WE DEMAND AN END TO THE UNDUE INFLUENCE OF A FEW AND
    BEING INSULTED WHEN WE REFUSE TO BLINDLY FOLLOW.
    WE WANT TO KNOW WHERE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS HAVE GONE
    WHICH WERE PROVIDED BY OUR SENIOR GOVERNMENTS. WE
    DEMAND OUR ONTARIO PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT FULLY
    INVESTIGATE THIS TOWN AND REVEAL THE WRONGS FROM THE PAST
    AND TAKE ACTION TO PREVENT REOCCURANCE.
    WE WANT TO STOP MONEY GIVEAWAYS FROM OUR SENIOR
    GOVERNMENTS JUST TO MAKE US THINK IT'S THE RIGHT THING FOR
    US, WHEN WE, THE CITIZENS OF ELLIOT LAKE, HAVE NO SAY IN IT.
    WE DEMAND TO BE HEARD.
    WE DEMAND OUR TOWN BACK.


    Go through your life with love and light, and nothing can truly harm you.
