July 4, 2019

A picture is worth a Thousand Words

Some News updates as well.

I was asked by someone if I could do a page just for Photos and Stories about the damages to lake Ontario, due to the flooding.

In the comments you cannot upload pictures but if you use the address from the address bar you can.

Faceblook for example if you click on the picture in a comment and new window will come up for the picture. Just copy and paste the http link, from the address bar, into the comment section below and the pictures will come up.

There are a few Rules. Be sure to read them. Those rules are to protect everyone as much as possible.

Rules to abide by

If you want to leave a comment and do not want others to read it  All comments are monitored by the admins. So if you have questions. Ask If you have any ideas. State them.

There are two choices state I want this publish or I don’t want this published  Put either one at the first of your comment. The world will see those comments, if you want them Published, 

If you have a before and after picture of damages

Tell a bit about them.

The date the photo was taken

Where the location of the photos were taken. City, Town, State or Province The actual address is not needed,.

Do not use pictures with children in them.

Do not post pictures, unless you have taken them. Others might be offended, if you you used someone else’s photos. If someone wants to tell their story photo’s and all it is up to each individual to do that.

If you don’t have a before picture, Explain as best you can, how it use to look.

If you have News stories, Videos add them as well. There are many out there. To many for the Admins to look for. All help is appreciated.

The Ottawa River did not flood as it has in 2017 and 2019 Until Plan 2014 was implemented. They had less snow in 2017 and 2019 then they had in 2008. If the Ottawa River was gong to flood it would have flooded in 2008. Less snow fall more flooding.  This would apply to most of the Ottawa River right up to the Northern regions. Go Here

On News reports it was said because of so much snow, there was a flood.  Then they add rain. Well when one lie is told ,another lie just might follow.

What is needed is a complete and honest statistics, all the way down the line. Weather wise for at least 25 years, like the statistics above. Not averages, real numbers. Averages mean nothing. Averages are just a way to manipulate the numbers. 100 people make $100 a week, averages out to the average person make $100 a week.  Change that to 98 people make $100 a week and two make $10,000 a week. Boy does that change the average pay for a week. So averages mean nothing. Real numbers do.

Add to that, guess what, the snow melts every winter, It comes it goes. It snows a bit more and some melts. Every winter it does that. That is not a new thing.

When you have a full bath tub and keep adding more water it will flow over if you don’t pull the plug. They keep Lake Ontario levels to  high. They don’t pull the plug in time to stop the over flow, under Plan 2014.  Had they lowered the levels in the Lake maybe all the flooding along the Ottawa River might not have happened. I guess they could not pull the plug Due to Plan 2014. Can’t let go both at the same time. Those along the Ottawa River want a Public Inquiry. They want answers. There is a connection between Lake Ontario and the Ottawa River. The only change over the years is Plan 2014.

Add to that a lot of Dams are operated by a computer from Head Quarters in the Toronto area. So people in the Toronto area, run the dams ,from  hundreds of miles away. This came to light in 2002 after two people were killed. Nothing like that ever happened,,when the locals ran the dam.

How many dams are run using a computer from hundreds of miles away?

 

A few Videos of the Ottawa River Flooding

Mean while Up stream From all of that. There is about 80Km of extremely low water levels.  About 6 feet low. The picture below was taken in May 2019. It had been low for some time.

There is a dam below the low level and one above.

 

Above that low water is a small Place called Mattawa

Everything there was fine until the dam operators decided to dump two feet of water from behind the dam a bit up river from them. They were not given much notice. So due to that they flooded. Considering down river was low the water could have been let out slower.

This is all Climate Change you understand. This is what some news agencies kept saying.

There is a video in the link below,  It also talks about the 2 feet of water dumped on them.

That is just a bit of insight of things that happened.

No wonder there are a lot of Questions.

Now back to Lake Ontario

They are breaking the terms of the 1909 Treaty. Everyone can read that for themselves.
