Come and learn about the fight to stop this disastrous project, located at the headwaters of five rivers, just two hours north of Toronto.

A company backed by a U.S. hedge fund has applied to build Canada’s largest limestone quarry in the north of Dufferin County, undermining and potentially contaminating the headwaters of five rivers that feed much of Southern Ontario’s farmland. Kate Chung and Cathy Brown of the First Unitarian Green Team will tell us about the project, its potential impact, and the ongoing struggle by local residents, farmers, and public interest groups to keep it from happening.

A recent extension of the deadline for comments has opened a narrow window for action. Come and learn the whole story and find out what we can do to help!
