Sorry... we tried to let everyone know, even put a few polls up to gauge public opinion...in the end this decision was one that made the most sense to Mike & I. The issue from the beginning with the STCC group has been the same... they are spreading lies and no one seems to care.

So we thought the ECNA should step in to correct that issue.

Of course, now we realize that nothing the STCC can do will stop a Dam Safety program dedicated to insure Federal Dam Guidelines are met.

They STCC has only survived because 3 Town leaders in the Rochester area gave this misguided group an audience. These leaders had a momentary lapse of "wishful thinking" if they believed that fighting against a public safety initiative would ever work. These Town Official all had a massive error in judgement if they think the Canal Corporation could be "swayed" to NOT comply with Federal Dam Safety Laws because a group of "tree-huggers" tried to convince them there wasn't "really" any Unsafe Erie Canal Embankments.

Maybe these Town Leaders should've noticed that the trees being "hugged" were the very ones causing the unsafe dam issues to begin with.

No matter... these Town Leaders, and I'm using that leader term loosely, will wake up, smell the coffee and realize very soon that they are advocating BREAKING the laws that were meant to protect the citizens of this Country, this State, and these Towns & Villages, by following the advice of this STCC group & it's Leadership Team. They will see that the Canal Corporation is trying to work in the best interest of the Erie Canal and leave the STCC to their own demise...fighting against safety NEVER WORKS!

These public official will do all this or risk being voted out of office by residents who are getting tired of the "fake news & false rhetoric"being spread by this "grass-roots" group who hasn't figured out that "grass" is the answer to the problem of unsafe dams... grass covered embankments that is.

As for the ECNA and it's "relationship" with the STCC...  Unless our guests & members come up with a way to convince the ECNA Forum Moderators that the STCC Opposition Board should stay, it will remain CLOSED. We don't need to give the STCC any encouragement to remain active, and we are only feeding their insatiable desire of "self-importance", if just to read how we show them the folly of their own words.

Of course they still "shop" at the ECNA Forum for the latest scoop on the Embankment project, or to find out what's new from the Canal Corporation which we encourage.. but it's time for them to go..  from Perinton, from Pittsford, from Brighton, from Facebook...and the from the ECNA... what's been said in the past about "bad rubbish"  oh yea.. good riddance.

Please, feel free to message us.. leave posts to convince us that there is ANY value at all to having the STCC Opposition Board remain. We are always open to the voice of the majority
