Wheatley Explosion Update: Second virtual meeting scheduled

Residents of Wheatley will once again receive an update have the opportunity to ask questions about last month’s explosion during a virtual meeting to be held Saturday, September 25 at 10 a.m.

Residents can access the live meeting through the municipality’s Facebook site and YouTube channel.

Questions submitted by residents onscreen will be directed to members of a panel including municipal officials and others.

Questions may be submitted in advance via email to up to two hours before the event.

Chatham-Kent Mayor Darrin Canniff, West Kent councillors Melissa Harrigan and Mark Authier, Chief Administrative Officer Don Shropshire and Jennifer Barton, Assistant Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry are among those participating.

Shropshire said the first meeting was held September 4 and had more than 300 people participating.

“Obviously we do not have an answer to every question but we want to make ourselves available as much as we can,” he said, in a media release.

“COVID regulations limit public gatherings so we’re doing the next best thing.”
