PETERS – Health concerns trump all in Ajax report

AS MY LEARNED colleague, Mr. Armchair Mayor, pointed out earlier this week, the final report from SLR Consulting on the KGHM-Ajax environmental application was a mixed bag.

It didn’t outright condemn KGHM as a bunch of kooks just trying to make a quick buck, nor did it laud the company as a paragon of rigor and realistic commitments.

The Armchair Mayor says the report shouldn’t be read as a scorecard in a game of pros and cons, but rather viewed from a broader perspective.

Is the risk worth taking?

    Why did the “process” even get this far?

    Agree! The health concerns are a fatal flaw in the project.
