  • Coordinated Land-use review: Your support is key

    As you know there is a coordinated land-use review underway until the end of May. NDACT was invited to a stakeholders’ meeting earlier in the process. We feel that it would be an important supplemental action to send a formal letter outlining our recommendations for this review. As well, this allows our supporters to better understand our position, and give you an opportunity to stand with us.

    Please scroll down and see the letter for details.

    Full details of review.

    The Mega Quarry campaign demonstrated that there are many in Ontario who are concerned about the future of our land and water ,and that many voices together can evoke meaningful change. This is a key opportunity to work together.

    Many thanks for your support.
