    Default Toxic Workplaces

    Jan 11 2005

    To Whom It May Concern.

    Wow what an experience.
    I was working at Gal Power Systems in Mississiauga on diesel generator
    I was working on a pair of 16 v 92 Detroit diesel generator sets at
    4160 volt at a facility called the South West Regional Center in
    Chatham Ontario.
    I was requested by the project manager Moe Gallick of the Ontario
    Realty Corporation to supply and install some fuel system components
    at an Ontario Provincial Police transmitter tower close by.
    When I went there to do the work I saw that this was an old abandoned
    site no longer in use.
    I was let into the building and began work.
    As I was working I noticed the building had a an unusual amount of rat
    poison or toxic chemicals distributed inside the building.
    No breathing equipment or protective clothing were supplied by either
    my employer Gal Power Systems , The Ontario Realty Corporation or the
    Ontario Provincial Police.
    Mr Gallick did not spend very much time in the building.
    I completed the work.
    Shortly after this I had to seek medical attention within the Ministry
    of Health and was of work for close to a year.
    This was a deliberate act.
    I almost died.
    This act of incompetence was the end of a series of poisonings that
    started a couple of years earlier when I was working at Harper Detroit
    Diesel on a project at Mississauga Hydro , probably continued when I
    was hired by Thomson Technology in British Columbia and almost ended
    in my death at Gal Power Systems.
    Talk about bad politics or a toxic work place.
    That's kind of the ultimate.
    Some people say there is no corruption here in Canada.
    There is much more to the story.

    Corruption is everywhere and I can hear the frustration loud and clear in your above POST. As you say there is much more to the story, well if there is much more to the story and you have enough evidence and hard core evidence to substantiate such claims then I highly suggest you find your self an ATTORNEY or a very GOOD LAW FIRM and SUE under either a Whistleblowers act, statue or some aother statue relating. I see from your Address that you are in Canada.
    This will take some work but below will be a place to start.

    Describe the rat poison ?

    I was employed at Gal Power Systems

    It was an old transmitter station / tower no longer used.

    Morris Gallick said they had to maintain power to the building and keep the diesel generator in working order to maintain the "aircraft warning lights" on the 200 foot tower.

    Inside the station they had what would be considered "normal pest control" in place.

    Plus what seemed to be an unusual amount of "rodent control equipment" placed all around the building.

    I have been to countless remote transmitter stations.

    There seemed to be a sticky chemical srayed in a thin layer on every part and everything on the inside of the transmitter station.

    It had a sweet smell to it.

    This happened August / September of 1999 I think.

    I looked around and decided, "I can't work in here".

    Gut instinct.

    Morris Gallick spent no time in the building.

    Shortly after this I wound up in the healthcare system for almost a year.

    My health started failing towards the last part of 1997 at Harper Detroit Diesel having been poisoned at that time.

    I just felt not well or a state of confusion when I try to remember back to that time.

    Rodent Control

    I was employed at Gal Power systems.

    At a remote "radio tower" or "microwave tower" site they have in place "rodent control".

    Whatever type of pesticide would be used for that.

    Some of these remote sites may not get a visit from a technician for 1 month, 2 months or longer if there was no indication from the alarm systems that all was normal.

    They do not use so much rodent control that you have to wear a "space suit" while working inside
    these buildings.

    I have been to "hundreds" of remote transmitter sites.

    20 years in a service truck.

    Some of these remote sites are a 8 to 10 hour drive from home base in northern Ontario.

    In other parts of Canada it is "off road" or "fly in".

    Very remote.

    Some of these systems are "prime power".

    No commercial power.

    Multiple "extended run" diesels take turns running to keep the site powered up.

    Some times these remote sites will run for 1 year with no visits from people.

    Rodent control, the same as in your kitchen, no "space suits" needed to protect technicians working inside these building.

    The site I worked at is a 5 minute drive from downtown Chatham, Ontario, Canada.

    A good size small town in south western Ontario.

    Morris Gallick did not leave the site.

    He waited outside in his truck.

    This is unusual, in my experience, people who usually look after these tower sites always work side by side with the contractor, and I mean always.

    I did not spend really any time at all in the building.

    Perhaps the excessive amount of toxic chemicals inside this building 5 minutes from downtown was an over site.

    It sure did make me sick, I almost died.

    Poisoned Office



    Located here :

    "Gee does this sound familiar."

    Made a friend at work one year.

    Turned out she had environmental illness.

    There was a person there, one supervisor in a 2-supervisor building,

    ..............................who had a racial problem.

    Well, the other supervisor needed an extra worker and got permission to get my friend from the other unit.

    That's when it all started and went

    .............................downhill from there.

    My friend had no say-so in the whole affair and didn't even know til after the fact.

    But that didn't matter to this person.

    She started spraying the office with perfume, raid,

    .............................anything to make my friend severely ill.

    Everyone knew my friend had this problem so there were no excuses.

    What simply floored me is the fact that even after being informed thru "medical documentation," etc. just got worse.

    They started resorting to 'no-smell' raid and started spraying my office a lot ……………unknown to me

    giving me these horrible headaches

    I don't get headaches unless something is very wrong.

    Took me a while to figure out what the heck was going on as I had no idea about my own sensitivities,

    and even thought maybe some of it was just in my friends mind....

    So when they started doing it to me to get to her.... they say...nothing works like the real thing baby.

    I started learning about health problems.

    Combined with the 'new building syndrome' there a year earlier,

    I started putting 2 and 2 together and became a believer.

    The supervisor in the gaining unit thought she was a nut case.

    Her co-workers did too and even joined the racist

    in spraying chemicals all over the building and especially in her office.

    It got to the point she had to have an environmental air cleaner in her office and had to have her own key with only the supervisor having the other key,

    and to keep her door shut during work hours as much as humanly possible.

    People there were so rude, and ugly to her.

    Of course, none of them had ever been seriously ill either.

    That is the only thing we could come up with why everyone was acting like a horses butt.

    My friend was older than everyone didn't help matters.

    Even though everyone knew her condition was life-threatening

    she had another problem linked in w/this,

    they joked about it behind her back and still schemed.

    This was about 15 yrs ago.

    Now there is more info out in the public about anaphalactic shock and severe allergies that kill

    and more people that have them too.

    Yet those that have these problems have to deal with all these bozo's in the workplace.

    But, yeah, I have seen that 'gang-up-on' mentality played out over and over in various places as if everyone was still back in high school.
