(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — The coalition will also be sharing the results from a community vote event in February at which residents identified what they see as the biggest issues. The DOH study will also come up, Heaney said, as the findings likely point to the effects of the companies' emissions. 

"We will ask him and the DOH to do a better job communicating with each other, and come up with an action plan for what the next steps should be," Heaney said.

She'll also be asking Martens to commit to keeping the air monitors in the area. As of right now, their continued use is only definite until 2014, Heaney said.

No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
