Time to take a look back at this past year, and all of the denial & dribble that came from the mouth of Ms. Elizabeth Agte, leader of a Facebook Group called Stop the Canal Clear-cut.

Individually, these posts collected from her social media website may seem somewhat harmless. But taken as a whole, they show a pattern of denial & disinformation from this leader, and her group, that continues even to this day, and group members simply refuses to believe the truth & facts about an aging, and now dangerous, NYS Canal System.

While the owners & caretakers are stating the Erie Canal needs repairs to keep it from becoming a flood disaster in our state, Ms. Agte and crew are crying "fear-mongering".

While the Erie Canal itself continues to show signs of potential failure, with over 200 leaks & seeps and a breach in Macedon, Ms. Agte and her group call it all "normal & acceptable".

Ms. Agte talks about "shade" along the Canal while those in charge of protecting the Canal System (and the public using it) are saying SAFETY should matter much more to all of us.

And do not be mistaken here, the NYS Canal System has now become a HUGE safety issue for the NYS Canal Corporation, and New York State in general. It's an accident waiting to happen, that will result in a devastating flood, loss of property, and possible loss of life.

All of this despite what you might read on Facebook and specifically the misinformation being spread by Ms. Agte and her "minions".

Here's a collection of what the ECNA discussed in 2022 directly from the posts of this social media group on Facebook, judge for yourself.
