Mid-Hearing Community Meeting – The Home Stretch

Thursday, June 13, 7 PM (doors open at 6:30), Eden Mills Community Hall

James Dick’s real agenda is being revealed and it’s even riskier than we thought. Our lawyer has been fiercely effective in cross examination of JDCL witnesses, and holes, errors and inappropriate assumptions in their evidence have been uncovered.

We will start to present ou case soon and we are feeling good about it. Learn more about the experts who will testify on our behalf.

It is critical that you come to the meeting to hear what your CRC Board has been doing on your behalf, and how you can support the campaign to stop the Hidden Quarry.
