Janice Goldthorpe's at it again.

She has nothing better to do but put a 'spin' on The Belle's good news to denigrate the NYPA.

Unbelievable and pitiful, all at the same time.

Couldn't agree more Mike, this Facebook Group continues to try and paint the picture that the NY State Canal Corporation is the "boogie man", now using the "poor Colonial Belle" as the catalyst for their fake facts and hype about being "stranded" away from their "home in Fairport".

Here's another post from one of the STCC group's "engineers", who's supposed to be steering them to the truth, not away from it.






STRANDED...the word is stranded! Now one may ask, why?

Well if you look at the Colonial Belle's Facebook Page you can see the answer, they were stuck due to a CANAL BREACH that the Stop the Canal Clear-cut group said "couldn't happen".

In fact this STCC group has been stating for three years now that "nothing is wrong" with the Erie Canal, it's water impoundments (earthen and other), all while it continues to be shut down daily with issues from failing locks to channel debris.

A MAJOR CANAL EARTHEN BREACH and they still are in denial about safety of the canal embankments and system as a whole





And to make matters worse for this STCC Facebook Group's "exaggeration of the truth", you only need to look at the Facebook page for the Colonial Belle, which says they are doing "quite well" running out of their temporary home, filling the ship, cruising most days & weekends.

They don't appear to be that "stranded"

https://www.facebook.com/colonialbelle

It would appear that "being stranded" with a boat on the Erie Canal has it's upside for "other Erie Canal communities".






Just more MISINFORMATION from a Facebook Group and it's Leadership, that information is aimed at the groups members, who seem to be unable to think for themselves, and still intent to ignore canal safety and unsafe embankments that are now causing breaches and closure of the waterway.

It's about time the hundreds of 'silent' members of this Facebook group stop being "complicit" to the messages being spread by Ms Agte and her "scoffers of safety", and start looking at the facts, which have ALWAYS run contrary to the rhetoric of this misguided group.

Time to listen to the truth about canal embankments, that is being stated by the owners of the property itself.

Time to stop pandering to those who won't do that, for whatever reason they want to make up.

I guess these folks have just realized the New York Power Authority has been ignoring them, that's what happens when you won't listen or believe the message of Erie Canal Safety First.

So now they're trying yet another delaying tactic in a feeble attempt to delay the inevitable.

I'm pretty sure that NYPA and the NYS Canal Corp are more than used to this 'letter bombing' tactics and will simply ignore them... once again.

Mike, You left out the BEST PART of that recent Facebook Post by Ginny Maier. I had to get the picture to share as well as the comments.



Talk about a pot calling the kettle "black"... this takes the cake.

Someone in the Stop the Canal Clear-cut Group, an organization that is ACTIVELY fighting AGAINST the maintenance of unsafe canal embankments, called the Canal Corporation "shameful". WOW!

And now Leader Maier says CALL the NYCC! all of "MY" faithful members, we have to DEMAND more time to moan, gripe and/or whine about Erie Canal Embankments. And she wants them to let her know they called by posting comments.

What for? So she can believe she is right?

Sounds like a movie I saw once, about a wizard and a place called Oz... Go Go.. my "flying monkeys"

Just just how long does it take to say "we don't like what you stated in the Guidebook" and we don't believe the "facts & science" that support it?

Folks, the EEIP Embankment Guidebook, the SEQR Environmental Impact Statement, and the Appendix Items in this recent EEIP document release, all mean the same thing for this Facebook group...


The STCC group GOT WHAT THEY ASKED FOR when they stopped the last Embankment work in Perinton.
 
But they don't like the answer they got in the EEIP Guidebook and GEIS.


The Stop the Canal Clear-cut group HAS NO WAY TO STOP the new EEIP work using SEQR as they did in the past.

And they don't like that simple fact either


And the Stop the Canal Clear-cut group WILL FADE INTO A DISTANT MEMORY very soon, once members finally realize they believed the wrong message, and followed "blind" leaders.

Then Ms. Agte, Ms Maier, Ms Gouldthorpe, Ms Meuwissen, and all the other STCC "minions" will have to accept they were wrong


Because in the end,  the group will go away (hopefully quietly), while the 4 LEADERS will hang their heads in shame for deceiving so many people with their mis-information and "valued opinions".

Or they won't admit they were wrong, and they will continue to NOT BE HEARD AND NOT BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY by the folks who run the NYS Canal System.


After all, the NYS Canal Corporation & NYPA are still trying to REPAIR a Public Safety NIGHTMARE, that this STCC Facebook Group and it's CORE LEADERSHIP still refuses to acknowledge, accept or approve. They would rather fight until their last breath, supporting the lies they convinced themselves & others to believe...hook, line & sinker.

I know one thing for sure... I'm glad I'm not Ms Agte or Ms Maier right now.

Because Batman & Robin are not "coming to the rescue".
