If you’ve been following the Melancthon Mega Quarry action, here is a video submitted by an OHS member Cheri, which may be of interest. Here is one of the comments, which helps to explain the water problem:
“Good question. When you let 600,000,000.00 litres of water a day every day drain out of rivers and natural acquifers and become polluted with the toxic effects of massive industry and heated to the point where fish which rely on cold water to reproduce can no longer breed, water and life are threatened. This volume of water needs to be re-circulated in perpetuity (10′s/100′s/1000′s of years) – what happens when the pumps break down or the company decides to leave? Who pays for that?
There are many more good videos online as well, lots of reactions from Orangeville folks and others.
