At the April 19, 2011 federal all candidate's debate, Liberal Candidate, when questioned on the Quarry stated:
“This is some of the best agricultural land east of Prince Edward Island, especially for growing potatoes,” Prout said. “You will have absolutely my full support in stopping this project. This is a ridiculous waste. … This can’t be allowed to happen.” http://www.orangeville.com/news/local/article/995940--highlands-companies-quarry-dominates-shelburne-debate
Well, good for him.
But if he really wants to get elected, what he needs to do ASAP is have Moo(vis) Wilson remove the Liberal Candidate sign off her front lawn.
Her endorsement in this neck of the woods, having bought farmland about 5 years ago from struggling and retiring farmers, while working for Highland companies knowing what was coming down the line in terms of limestone and Highlands purchasing land, is worth less than nothing.
