I called the Hamilton Spectator after the last story ran, with the information about this site. They clearly passed it on to Matt, why I’m not sure, perhaps they didn’t believe it and couldn’t be bothered to check it out themselves. Perhaps Matt has a relationship with the Spec staff, who knows.

Regardless, to make out that Matt sleuthed out the site is disingenuous. He was given good information by a member of the public who couldn’t believe the big deal that was being made of the first site, when a far worse site existed only a few blocks away. That is the reason there was a second follow up story shortly after the first.

Good job on the story Matt, but don’t make out that you found the place. You followed clear and precise directions to the barrels. You could have admitted it. I’ll be more careful about who I pass information along to next time.
