Tory leader, critic call for immediate
action on Frederick Street issue
Cape Breton Post, February 13, 1999
Progressive Conservative Leader John Hamm and
Environment Critic Jim DeWolfe want the province
to take immediate action on behalf of the residents
of Frederick Street and do what is best for the
people living in the neighbourhood.
Hamm was responding to a report released by the
Sierra Club of Canada recommending the
evacuation of area residents.
"It's better to err on the side of caution over an
issue with such enormous implications. The health
and safety of these people cannot be compromised
for any reason."
Wolfe said he hoped the Liberal government would
not wait for more studies before taking action.
"The conflicting conclusions of the Can Tox report
and the report commissioned by the Sierra Club
should not prevent government from acting in the
best interests of the residents in the
neighbourhood. There is an obvious problem that
must be addressed."
