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."
