CALEDON, ON, March 26 /CNW/ - As part of its decade-long opposition to
the negative impacts of the proposed Rockfort Farm Quarry application at
Winston Churchill and Olde Baseline in the Town of Caledon, the Coalition of
Concerned Citizens of Caledon is undertaking a Water and Wetlands Tour.
The bus tour is intended to inform and educate decision-makers of the
potentially disastrous water-related impacts of the proposed open pit
dolostone mine and its water pumping operations. The tour will highlight the
Escarpment ecosystem, the Paris Moraine, cold water fisheries, wetlands and
river tributaries. As well it will point out their value in terms of drinking
water supplies, agriculture, tourism, recreation, and ecological integrity and
Said Penny Richardson, Coalition President; "The more we learn of the
hydrogeological dangers of this proposed open pit mine, the more concerned we
are ... and the more important it is for people to see them first hand."
Display materials will be available for viewing from 2:00pm. The bus tour
begins at 2:30 on Friday, April 4, 2008, leaving from the Terra Cotta Inn at
175 King Street, Terra Cotta.
