Mr. Crump of Toronto wrote a letter to the editor in the Orangeville Banner.
In the letter, supporting the Mega Quarry, he writes:
"While I agree with much of what Rob Strang said about the pristine British Columbia (BC) environment and the northern gateway pipeline project providing little benefit to the province — Oil pipeline is a lot different than a road, On Politics column published Aug. 21— his attempt to draw a parallel with the Melancthon quarry proposal accomplished the opposite.
The quarry, of course, would extract the resource in Ontario for use within Ontario to meet a projected future Ontario demand. The province and its residents will indeed bear the environmental risk, but will also reap the benefits in terms of jobs and a secure supply of an essential construction material.
It doesn’t take much imagination to envision materials quarried in Melancthon being used in Melancthon. "
His thought process is clearly misguided. Materials quarried in Melancthon used in Melancthon? Seriously?
