    At 2:00 the chair cut off calling names of persons who had requested to speak. I inquired, and he reluctantly told me that there were 17 remaining names, including me. Probably 1/2 of those 17 persons had left the hearing. I had driven 140 miles to the hearing and arrived at 10:15. Guess how I feel about the sincerity of the Chair at hearing citizen input? I told him directly to his face.

      Not cool at all. Remember that you can submit comments by other means, and that you can always try to attend another (hopefully closer) hearing. Thank you (and everybody else) for coming out, though!

    There is an anti-fracking rally that starts at 9:30 am at the McKinnon Center. Also, they will begin taking names to speak at the hearing starting at 9am for the hearing that runs from 10 am to 2 pm.

    I'm thinking of driving over there on my lunch hour. Do you know if they hearing will run through the noon hour, or if it will be on break?

      I don't know - you might be able to find more details on the website listed on some of the other MEC posts here.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
