Letter to the editor:
"Led by local group NDACT, the coalition of interests raised a very impressive and effective publicity campaign that educated and enthused the greater public to “Stop the Mega Quarry.”
And they did.
But does the spirit of the Stop the Quarry movement end here?
Unfortunately the tried and true methods of large scale aggregate mining continue largely untouched. Under the radar, operations that start with a few hundred acres grow incrementally by adding land through amendments to existing licences. The end result is the same — the creation of colossal sites that eventually exceed the acreage that was proposed by Highland Farms, and keep going. North Caledon already has a 3,800 acre corridor of licensed pits backing on to each other, with expansions likely to come."

The writer is questioning does the stop the Quarry movement end with the fact they have Stopped the "MEGA QUARRY"
I would hazard a guess NO based on what I am reading on their website.
To find out for sure go to www.ndact.com or better still attend their annual general meeting and celebration to find out their next steps. Details here:
