CRC: Enough aggregate already in Ontario for next 50 years… By: Vivien Fleisher

This New Tanner article published November 1, 2018 provides a good overview of how CRC’s Hidden Quarry fight has gone over the past 6 years, where it’s at today, and where we need to get to over the next 7 months. It’s a tough fight but so far clean living has prevailed, and with everyone pulling together there’s solid hope that in 7 months the Hidden Quarry proposal will be laid to rest.

CRC Big Letter to Doug Ford
CRC Big Letter to Doug Ford

Our letter to Premier Ford is just the beginning of our public campaign to raise the profile of the Hidden Quarry case and to let politicians know that we are not accepting aggregate mining in our community.

In the past few months the CRC team has welcomed a new member, Mike Balkwill of Wellington Water Watchers. His expertise is in public/political campaigning. He has long experience, and most recently was instrumental in bringing the Nestle water taking issue to whole new levels including international media coverage as well as a government moratorium on new permits for water bottling companies, and in the Shin Yi Glass Plant turndown last summer.

Mike is energetic and focussed on action. We are all excited to be trying to keep up with him. He will guide and work with us towards the goal of having a ministerial intervention, stopping the Hidden Quarry – a decision which can be made outside the walls of an OMB/LPAT court room.

ACTION: On Thursday, November 15, Mike welcomes anyone who would like to be involved in a brain-storming session to plan our campaign strategy – which may contain everything from letter-writing campaigns to signs to things that go bump in the night. YOU will bring ideas, questions and conviction to the table. Mike will help consolidate a practical and effective plan.

We love the BIG letter above. It’s just the beginning!!
