Councillor Moya Johnson and Joan Robson, who don’t live in the area, immediately went into damage control, opening the door, through C.A.O. Dennis Perling, giving Transcanada an opportunity to refute the Doctor’s concerns. Instead, the door flew open to new concerns that had not yet been raised, regarding safety. When Bonnette asked about safety hazards or any catastrophic incidents associated with this type of operation, Transcanada’s V.P. made a casual reference to a event involving a similar power plant operating in The United States, but ended the conversation promptly by adding he wasn’t prepared to talk about it.

Councillors Johnson and Robson both concluded their council inquisition, instead of focusing on the potential health hazards and the noise pollution that the facility was going to be generating in the community, they focused instead on the landscape design and issues pertaining to how old the trees we’re going to be that the developer is going to plant to hide the facility and its exhaust stacks which, the Dr. claimed; would need to be 200’ feet high to safely transport any potential heat, emissions and noise pollutants from the immediate area

Dr. Richard Kunica of Hornby told members of council; “we’ve been sold down the river by these smooth talking developers of Transcanada”, and went on to raise all of the important issues that no one at the council meeting, including P.O.W.E.R., were prepared to raise. The doctor started by making reference to the estimated two thousand tonnes of gas that the facility would burn a day and the subsequent radiant heat that would dissipate into the community. The Doctor went into specific details with the toxins and the health related hazards that are associated with the emissions of this type of power plant, stating; the exhaust is definitely acidic and went on to individually itemized some of the pollutants as; Nitrous Oxide, Sulfur Dioxide, Carbon Monoxide, Hydrocarbons and last but not least, Benzene which is a known toxic carcinogen. He talked about mercaptan which adds more sulfur deoxide to the carbons. He raised the issues concerning the present noise pollution levels currently generated by the traffic from the 401, which he claimed is somewhere around 40 decibles. The Doctor then added; the plant could likely add another 60 decibles to the existing noise polution levels, which would make the plant the single largest contributor of noise pollution in that area.
