That artical is a broken record. U.S. Governtment officials always ask for too little and too late. I beleive almost every company in chemical valley already have to have a discharge pool! And there is already a warning system in place. So both the things we are asking for are already in place but don't work. Hit them in the pocket book. And not these $10,000 fines. That will not do anything. They need to put together a huge lawsuit. Or maybe every violation brings a tariff on their products?

I would think the HUGE lawsuit is on the way... Good for us.

quote:

Turner said he has collected more than 3,000 signatures of Ontario residents on a petition that demands legal action be taken against Royal Polymer Inc., the Sarnia-area company that discharged 650 pounds of vinyl chloride into the river on Aug. 14-15. The spill apparently resulted from the widespread power failure.

How many Stag island victims were aloud to sign there signatures.<<<none>>>
