To Whom It May Concern.

Wow what an experience. I was employed at Gal Power Systems in Mississiauga to work on diesel generator systems. 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 off 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. The harrasment to date in my work place is unbelievable and intolerable with off colour and snide comments about my mental health. There is much more to the story.
