Stop the Mega Quarry

Please take a few seconds to add your name to the I-petition to Stop the Mega Quarry that is proposed by a USA Hedge Fund for Central Ontario.
The mere size is boggling; a parcel of land covering 2,300 acres and dug 50 feet deeper than Niagara Falls will make this the second largest quarry in North America.
With 300 trucks hourly plus 20 tons of explosives daily, the potential for disaster on transportation corridors, water and the environment is enormous. This destruction of our prime agricultural land and natural resources for foreign profit must be stopped.
We need your help - please sign the petition: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/megaquarry/

  1. One mega quarry will replace many small quarries, is that better or worse?

    We've been quarrying since the Stone Age, and of course there is damage to the environment, water and to people, but are we proposing abandoning stone as a building material?
