Our group sought out Dr. Shirley Thompson’s help on this issue and worked with her to have their own soil testing performed, even assisting with picking the locations they thought would be of concern. The fact our group had performed its own soil testing was not disclosed until the meeting with Deputy Minister Bruce Gray.
