A plan to ship T.O.’s garbage to Adams Mine in Kirkland Lake may be dead, but that doesn’t mean some other city’s refuse won’t find its way to the site.
Gordon McGuinty of Rail Cycle North, the plan’s proponent, still holds a certificate of approval — good for five years — to dump household waste at the site.
Timiskaming-area Grit MPP David Ramsey, an opponent of the plan, says there’s nothing stopping McGuinty from shipping garbage from some other Ontario city to the site. Or from getting approval from his Tory friends at Queen’s Park to allow U.S. garbage or commercial waste.
“The guy (McGuinty) is resourceful,” says Ramsey. “I wouldn’t count him out just yet.”
McGuinty is keeping any plans he may have close to his chest. He declined to respond to requests from NOW for comment.
