Wheatley Virtual Meeting Planned for Saturday

A virtual meeting to provide updates regarding on-site work and the ongoing investigation into last year’s explosion will be held Saturday, April 9 at 10:00 am.

Also to be discussed is a potential reduction in the size of the evacuation zone in downtown Wheatley caused by the explosion at 15 Erie Street North that destroyed a building and required 20 people to seek medical aid.

The meeting will be viewable on the municipal Facebook page and municipal YouTube channel. No registration is needed.

Following a presentation, questions submitted onscreen will be submitted to a panel including municipal officials and others.

As a result of the explosion, 67 households and 44 businesses and not-for-profit organizations had to be evacuated. There were no fatalities.
