Quarrels with Quarries

Wednesday, June 17, 2020 6:30pm - 8:00pm
EDT in Toronto

Hosted by Katie Krelove, WC Ontario Campaigner

Aggregate mining — for gravel, sand and rocks — is big business in Ontario. The pits and quarries that go into getting these building blocks of construction also pose significant threats to wetlands, farmland, wildlife habitat and drinking water. The current Ontario government has made moves to reduce restrictions on where and how gravel pits and quarries are permitted, and it's important that we all have the tools to stand up for the nature that protects us. Join this webinar to hear from experts about Ontario's policy that regulates (or doesn't) aggregate extraction and from communities that are fighting back to protect the land they love. We will also give you ways to take action to prevent deregulation of the aggregate industry.
