Re: “Blatantly False.”
Wow! We must have struck a nerve.
“Outrageous and blatantly false” claims about the project, and “mistruths and innuendos” by the undersigned and Get Concerned Stratford. So say Xinyi and their former consultant in a letter to this paper. But a read of our letter and theirs only finds one error – sleeping facilities on the site. For the very first time, in a letter to the editor of the Beacon Herald, Xinyi advises the community that it will not be building the “Emergency Preparedness Centre dormitory.” We could not have known this.
The City of Stratford asked Xinyi directly how much greenhouse gas the plant would emit. Xinyi’s answer is on the city website. Nowhere in that answer does the amount of greenhouse gas emissions appear. They ducked the question.
We point out Chinese laws that, so far, Xinyi has refused to say anything about. Their letter erroneously claims that we are blaming a potential security risk “simply because it is a company with roots in Asia,” which was never said by us. But it is convenient to play the racist card when you don’t want to answer the questions.
