Residents of the First District are said to be the most affected by the smoke and dust. Many are concerned that their health is being impacted negatively.
A large landfill fire was seen last night and continues to burn today, sending plumes of smoke in the direction of West End, Romney Park and even Carrot Bay.
General Election is Monday, April 24, 2023; however, the frustrated residents of the First District are not waiting another day to collectively let their voices be heard on the urgent issue of the frequent landfill fires at Pockwood Pond.
