A useful primer from Letty McNeil on how to build community teams – being distributed at the AWARE Simcoe meetings. Feel free to download and print off.


Some Site 41 supporters have joined AWARE Simcoe, which is working to protect the water by ensuring that issues of accountability and responsible environmental stewardship are addressed in the coming municipal election (October 25) and good candidates are elected. The next AWARE Simcoe meeting is set for Saturday July 10 at the Royal Canadian Legion, 2 Poyntz St., Penetanguishen. For more information call 705-812-0643 or email

Donate to protect the water

The certificate of approval has been revoked but there is still some unfinished business, in particular the judicial review of the Information and Privacy Commissioner’s order regarding the calibrated computer model of the hydrogeology at Site 41. This is an important issue of transparency and accountability. Stephen Ogden is the appellant.

Provincial Affairs: prorogation prevented Bill 32 from being called to committee

Bill 32, Simcoe North MPP Garfield Dunlop’s private member’s bill – that would revoke the Site 41 Certificate of Approval – passed second reading in the Ontario Legislature last November. This was a very important victory.
But Premier Dalton McGuinty prorogued the Legislature for a few days after the end of the Olympics in order to come back with a new Throne Speech. Bill 32 died on the order paper.
