Paris to Ancaster race kicks off cycling season

There are 4 comments on the The Toronto Star story from Apr 14, 2012, titled Paris to Ancaster race kicks off cycling season. In it, The Toronto Star reports that:

It's called the Paris to Ancaster bicycle race , but it could easily be the Route of the Muddy Mixed-Bag. The 60-km race, which takes place Sunday, covers just about every surface you can think of - and that's the point, according to last year's winner.

am sending ( or forwarding) this to you simply because I am upset and I strongly believe you should be as well. Please read the Nestle letter, with particular attention to the second paragraph. I find this a perfect example of what I call “corporate deceit”...perhaps you do as well?

I am extremely offended and find obnoxious that they would:

1. Send this to The Town Of Erin council on 4/10 (Tues), the timing of which precludes any publication or media coverage in appropriate newspapers prior to the meeting , which would have ensured public awareness of the process beforehand.

2. Schedule “their” meeting just one week after informing the Town of Erin......with no apparent attempt make the public aware of the matter.....IE media, mailings....anything. They imply they want a good turnout and they say they “want to fully inform”......the public???? Really????

3. They would schedule “their” meeting to coincide with the exact date and time of the regularly scheduled Town of Erin council meeting. What is their motivation? So the public cannot attend both? So council cannot participate? Your guess is as good as mine!

4.“As our neighbour”....did the residents at Station Rd & 6th, as well as 22nd SR get a copy? Is this invitation only for them?? Are the rest of the public of no consequence?

5. Given the above do you really think they “welcome your (our) thoughts” about anything...let alone whatever they have in mind for 15 Station Rd??? I doubt it....how about you?

Notice where and when they use the pronoun you. Are they speaking to council, the public .....who exactly??? Read carefully ......word by word

Paragraph two....”we want you”,”we cordially invite you”.......who are they addressing ....the public or council?? In the second case, I assume it must be the public since there is a council meeting going on at the same time???!!

Paragraphs four, five and six...you has got to be the council????? I (the public??) never heard of or have I seen their “last update of Nov 2010 nor I have never been notified beforehand about “ next steps”!!!!

Since, to my knowledge, council is the only recipient of this original update I assume they are not inviting the public “to contact by email” if we have any questions and concerns.

I urge you attend this meeting to express your disdain and dissatisfaction with the way in which Nestle is attempting to circumvent an otherwise legitimate process and at the same time insist that another meeting be scheduled within an appropriate timeframe, which will ensure public awareness thru the media etc., thereby allowing for legitimate public input and participation.

IF you agree and you too are concerned about the application for renewal and offended by the “update” then PLEASE hit forward (including the attachment).......to your mailing list ASAP.....the 17th is just around the corner!!! I sincerely apologize for the very short notice, however, you have Nestles to thank for that.

IF you are neither concerned nor offended by the letter or the application for renewal etc etc then simply hit delete.

Thank you for your time and consideration of this important matter.
