Get Concerned Community Meeting, December 8, 2020

Our first community meeting was very well attended. There was a lot of information to take in, and many questions. Among the speakers were local environmentalists and property owners, as well as our environmental lawyer, David Donnelly. Mike Balkwill, of the Wellington Water Watchers, led the meeting.

December 8 meeting:
12 minute version

This is a high-level summary of the issues and questions around the proposed Xinyi glass plant, created from select parts of Mike Sullivan's presentations during the Dec. 8th Get Concerned Stratford Community meeting.

The first Council meeting

This is one of the best recordings of democratic action at the local level that you’re going to see. People were really mad, and very articulate. They covered all aspects of the issue. This is the point where Council began to realize what an enormous mistake they’d made, and you can see it on their faces.
