About Andrew

Since 2014, I have had the privilege to serve Ward 1 residents as Councillor for the Town of Tecumseh. With my background in municipal public works, my record of professional experience and community engagement can be put to extensive use to keep Tecumseh a great place to live.

I am ecstatic to have been a part of the Town's progress over the last four years and to have been acclaimed to serve a second term as Ward 1 Councillor from 2018-2022. You can continue to count on me to deliver responsive, reliable and responsible town oversight, decision-making and advocacy on your behalf.

The Odour Explained

Over the last few days I have received a number of calls and e-mails regarding the odour that we're currently experiencing.

Bonduelle has advised the Town of Tecumseh of what it is.  The plant is processing dry beans.  They're taking red kidney beans, chick peas, etc., blanching them through a continuous blanching process, and then freezing them.

They began the process on Saturday, December 13th and concluded their dry bean production today.  You're smelling the blanching/cooking of the dry beans during the process.  The production of dry/frozen beans occurs twice annually, in December and June.  Usually, each period last about 7 - 8 days.

Please do let me know if you have any comments on this, either here or by calling me at 226-773-1910.
