Put some scuba gear on Stephen McNeil, if he wants what is best for Nova Scotia he should be the Freddy Krueger shut the fuck up shirt to get to the bottom of this. Besides, after approving the World Trade and convention Centre in halifax, he should be a sinkhole expert by now. When I was growing up in Amherst there’s a lake outside of town I can’t remember what it’s called but I remember that it was formed because of a sink hole and I was told that no one has ever found the bottom of the lake it’s so deep – I would say that there’s a lot of sink holes in Cumberland County – just because people haven’t heard about them doesn’t mean they don’t exist. A little science fiction here maybe: If science community have equipment that can send back information from Mars, Pluto, Venus or the Sun; why doesn’t it have equipment that can be thrown into the middle of the sink hole and send back information on the source, cause, what is eating. Was there ever a mine in that area? I’m betting it will be the peoples fault for building there and there will be no help from the Provincial Government or The Premier of NS. I can hear it now the Enviorment Minister will say we have to let nature take its course and you will get a new Eco -System it will be beautiful unless they want the gypsum underneath then you will be replaced by a mine.Wishing the people of Oxford the best of luck in the days ahead.
