2-Part QUESTION ADDRESSED TO MORINVILLE COUNCIL AND MAYORAL CANDIDATES
1/ Given the large residential population and attempt to showcase Morinville as a friendly clean place to live, what would you do regarding the foul odour currently being produced by the Morinville dog food plant? Would you be in support of a strong air quality bylaw or revocation of business licences if the air pollution continues?
2/ Why are Morinville residents funding by way of tax breaks to clean up the Champion Pet Food Plant? Clearly if they want to be good corporate citizens they would voluntarily at their own cost clean up their act. Why ask the residents to fund the local businesses especially those damaging our community reputation and why has a hard and fast deadline not been put in place to solve this issue outside of the obviously ignored requests and complaints from local residents?
