• OMAFRA Survey - your input is needed

    The Ontario government wants to know what you think about extracting aggregate on prime agricultural land. (We believe we sent that message loud and clear during the Mega Quarry fight!) The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) has helped prepare a short questionnaire for farmers, stakeholders, academics, aggregate producers and YOU to provide some input.

    The deadline is next Friday, October 2nd!

    If some of the questions are not within your area of expertise, skip them. But please weigh in.

    There are great questions about whether stringent soil studies,
    monitoring of sites and rehabilitation are critical.
    Check √. Check √. Check √.


    Please feel free to share it!
