Over the last three years, the people opposing the rape of Melancthon by Highlands have received help from some predictable people, groups and places and some have come completely unexpected.
All of it has been helpful.
We have a group now asking for OUR help and they have been great supporter of our cause.
Can you help?
As you know the Wellington Water
Watchers is a volunteer organisation which has been working steadily for 5 years
now on protecting source water.
We have recently submitted a large document
(Request for Review) in partnership with the Council of Canadians to the
Province asking for a total review of the water permitting process as it applies
to commercial bottling and environmental values. We do not believe that the
EBR process is working and are getting people to flood Minister Bradley with
comments regarding the current Nestle renewal of their permit on a farm near
Nestle bought the farm and got the water rights and trucks the water 50
kms to their Aberfoyle plant. Ironically this degrades roads which need
GRAVEL! All totally avoidable.
Nestle is looking to get a 10 year renewal, we
oppose it outright.
So we are asking people take direct action by sending the MOE Minister an email or a letter.
