    SOCIAL BICYCLES (SOBI: TEST RUN BEGINS
    0:00 0 to 0:00 0 Beginning January 16, SoBi Hamilton began rolling out bicycles across the city as part of the first test phase of the new year-round bike share program. The upgraded electronic systems developed by Social Bicycles recently arrived to the local operator so the bikes are now equipped to start hitting the streets. About 200 bikes will be installed for the winter season test and the full fleet of 750 bikes will be deployed in March 2015 for the official launch of the program. Anyone who has already purchased a bike share membership - or who buys a membership during the test phase - will now be able to start using the bikes. The membership clock for Annual and Founding Memberships won’t start ticking until the official launch of the program on March 20, 2015 so members will get 14 months of usage but will only pay for 12 months, and Monthly Members get two months for the price of one. For more information about the bike share program, visit: Memberships - http://hamilton.socialbicycles.com/#memberships FAQs - http://sobihamilton.tumblr.com/post/108223601517/frequently-asked-questions Other information Location:   across Hamilton, Hamilton, Ontario, Region: Hamilton,      Contact Info:    http://hamilton.socialbicycles.com/.

    COMMUNITY MEETING RE: TOXIC EMISSIONS FROM SIX NATIONS INCINERATOR
    0:00 0 to 0:00 0 Six Nations elected council will hold a community meeting to explain what is to be done about a faulty Disintegrator that has been discharging extremely high levels of dioxins and furans into the air at the landfill site. Council will consider a recommendation to hold the meeting after the committee of the whole heard this week the results of a study released by RWDI Engineers and Scientists. The study concludes the Kearns Disintegrator unit has been releasing emissions at the Six Nations landfill site at levels that “far exceed” Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change standards. Dioxins and furans are listed as carcinogens by Health Canada. The Disintegrator is an incinerator designed by Nova Scotia inventor John Kearns 30 years ago, which promises zero emissions, clean ash and the ability to handle all kinds of waste without sorting. The technology is supposed to reduce objects into their essential elements as ash. A demonstrator Disintegrator unit was operating from January 2014 to May 2014, when it was shut down in the face of a community protest over its faulty operation, smoke, odours and health concerns. A “baghouse” – filter – in the machine was broken. A new machine has been on order. Meanwhile, air emissions tests were conducted in November 2014, which confirmed the concerns of many. “I expected it was going to be that way,” Coun. Helen Miller, whose district includes the area, said in an interview Wednesday. She recalled the matter being broached in a previous appearance before the council. “It's an old machine. It wasn't burning right. We're going to be getting a new one,” said Miller. “We have the order in for it. It's a question of when it will come.” When the report was presented at the committee of the whole, at first councillors were going to refer it to another committee for consideration, but Miller won support to hold a community meeting. Meanwhile, Miller said she has just as much concern about the dump as she does the machine. “The landfill has no liner,” she said. “It's just a hole in the ground. But people don't seem to be concerned all that much about it. They keep hollering about the machine.” The administration is organizing the community meeting, at which RWDI officials are expected to be in attendance to explain the problems and the report. Details about the meeting will be announced shortly. This waste incinerator has been shown to fail emissions tests. All along Six Nations residents have been concerned about the Kearns Disintegrator System. According to Dr. Paul Connet, a chemist and activist against incineration as a method of waste management, “This is incredibly bad. Other results are not good either, but this result should end any notion that we are dealing with a bona fide operation. I am not aware of any incinerator operating anywhere in the world which is this high above the national emission standard.” There will be a community meeting: http://www.brantfordexpositor.ca/2015/01/22/community-meeting-over-faulty-incinerator Location:   Six Nations, TBA, TBA, Six Nations, Region: Hamilton,      Contact Info:
