Stanley and Beatrice Bara are an elderly couple who looked forward to spending their retirement years in the country.
When we learned of the dangers of airborne pathogens, especially those with weakened immune systems, we immediately remembered Stan and Beatrice watching in horror as Terratec dumped that foul smelling sewage waste 750 feet away from their home.
We remembered how Beatrice stood in the street with flies swarming around her as she furiously told Terratec not to dump in Cedarville. And we remembered. how she had told us some weeks later that she was a cancer survivor .... that her Lymphoma had been in remission for some 7 years.
We were assured by the Township and the Ministry of Environment (MoE) that she was in no danger. We are always told, "there is no danger."
ON JULY 26, 2000, our well was tested for E. coli. There was none.
The sewage sludge was dumped 600 feet from our well on August 31, 2000. ON SEPTEMBER 13TH, we were notified our well was polluted with E. coli.
The Township and Terratec say this is a coincidence.
IN JULY 2000, Beatrice Bara had a Lymphoma check up. She was given a clean bill of health.
The sewage sludge was dumped 750 feet from her house on August 31, 2000. ON CHRISTMAS DAY, four months after the sludge dumping, Beatrice was taking a shower when she found a lump in her neck. The doctors found a tumour. After 7 years in remission, her Lymphoma was back.
By the time she could get an operation, three more tumours appeared. She is now awaiting chemotherapy. The Township and Terratec say this is ALSO a coincidence.
AND I SUPPOSE they will tell us that it is a coincidence that Beatrice's formerly-healthy husband,. Stanley, ALSO found a tumour just before Christmas -- three and a half months after he stood in the warm morning wind, inhaling whatever Toronto shipped out to us in its putrid sewage sludge.
