Environmental Sustainability sounds good but is far from reality.
This is basically the letter I sent to people involved in the Copenhagen Summit.
The release of garbage leachate on to the streets and lanes of North American communities has become increasingly dangerous to the World as we create more and more chemical combinations, that in turn wind up inside these compactor garbage trucks, mixing with many other forms of chemical combinations, not meant to be combined. I am focusing on the cumulative affect of the release of garbage leachate poisons in this manner since compactor garbage trucks first began to be used on the North American Continent in 1938. In this note, I am sending you information that focuses on the 'Environmental Sustainability' concept put forward by the Canadian politicians and others. There is nothing resembling Sustainability in our Environment at this point in time and every politician in the the Canadian Federal Government, the British Columbia Legislature, every Environment Minister Provincial and Federal in Canada and Vancouver City Hall have known we are being poisoned, for many, many years, as is shown in the information presented in the following flickr link. In the following link you will see the documentation from 1991 to 2003. http://www.flickr.com/photos/bharbara/collections/72157603541114578/
No level of Canadian Government, Civic, Provincial or Federal have stopped garbage leachate from being spread all over the streets and lanes of Canadian cities and towns where these compactor garbage trucks are being used. I must say that I do have high hopes for the government in control of Vancouver City Hall at this point. Nothing could be worse than the NPA government we had at City Hall for far to long.
When COPE was in control of Vancouver City Hall there were some things done that I thought would lead us into finally stopping the poisonings from continuing. COPE voted to obtain a fleet of automated garbage trucks that would stop the release of leachate on the streets and lanes of our Vancouver communities. The problem is COPE was no longer the controlling government in the following election so the issue of the release of garbage leachate from compactor garbage trucks owned and operated by private haulers was not addressed and corrected. The only thing that was partially corrected was the City Hall trucks now had some trucks that did not release garbage leachate all over the streets.In the following link it is in mid November when the true problem becomes most visible but I have added all of the photographs and videos from October 2008 to April 2009.

In this flickr site there is also the answers to questions asked of the Canadian Minister of the Environment in Petition 277. This has been occurring for so long and is so widespread it's very frightening. I am sending you information so you can access Petition 277 which is published on the website of the Environmental Sustainability Department in the Canadian Auditor Generals Office. http://www.oag-bvg.gc.ca/internet/English/pet_277_e_32988.html
These pictures best describe what I am talking about.
