Walking the perimeter of the largest proposed quarry site in Canadian history

Published on Jul 27, 2012 by

A Boston hedge fund (ninth-largest globally) has applied to turn 2300 acres of prime Canadian farmland into an open pit mine diverting 600 million litres of fresh water per day, in perpetuity. The mega-quarry application is creating unprecedented public opposition.

It took me 5-1/2 hours to walk around the perimeter of the largest proposed megaquarry in Canadian history. The open pit would be 25 kilometers in circumference. The size is staggering, and that's not the worst of it. The land in question is the best food-growing soil in Canada, and the aquifer under this land feeds 5 river systems.
