stop the mega-quarry: deadline for comments is midnight tonight

The deadline to submit comments to the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, voicing your opposition to the Melancthon mega-quarry, is midnight tonight. Please:

1. Sign the Avaaz petition: here.

2. Submit your comment to the Ministry: here.

3. Share these links with everyone you know.

As Alison at Creekside asks: "If only 3% of land in Ontario is suitable for agriculture, why should any of it be lost to an open pit mine deeper than Niagara Falls to benefit US investors who acquired the land by passing themselves off as farmers?"

For some basic background on this swindle, see my post here, with material from both Avaaz and the Council of Canadians.

It can be stopped. We can stop it.
