From HAZCO's FAQ web page (quoted verbatim):
FAQ #36. Why not build in a community that supports your project instead of one with so much opposition?
It is common for any industrial facility to encounter public opposition in an area that has historically been agricultural. Through honest and transparent communication, we believe that the community will accept Hazco based on the sound design, construction and operation of the proposed facility.
HAZCO is using propagandistic rhetoric in trying to pull the wool over peoples eyes.
Of course it has been common for HAZCO to have been kicked out where it wanted to locate its sulphur storage site. No county in its right mind would want to have anyone put the foot in its door to make it the dumping ground for hazardous waste processing.
The taxpayers of Alberta shelled out literally hundreds of millions of dollars to construct a disposal industry in Swan Hills. Let HAZCO take its sulphur there or somewhere closer to where it is being produced but not in Lamont County, where land needs to be held ready for other far better-paying industrial developments.
HAZCO has been kicked out of or scared away from two locations they desired already. Why should Lamont County go for the bait that others already twice refused to swallow?
