I am rather taken aback by the Berendsen Appeal. It had to be a lot of money and all sworn to secrecy.

In the Heighington et al case- The 1937 Public Health Act -re Noxious Substances stood front and center. We cleaned up the the land.

Asphalt is a NOXIOUS SUBSTANCE and if the DOH dumped it there in the swamp, they are liable.

Reading all of this & more gives you an insight of what happened here!! - the fault is with the Provincial Government they ruined this Family Farm!!!!! - they don't care & they will admit nothing!! Shameful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
