Sandy Pond Alliance Rally – Feb 27, 2013

The Sandy Pond Alliance will be back in court on February 27th and 28th. The Alliance will make its case before the Federal Court of Canada to prevent pristine lakes, ponds, and waterways from being designated and used as tailings ponds for mining and smelter waste.

The case will be heard by the Federal Court in the Newfoundland Supreme Court chambers on Duckworth Street. Presently there are about 18 lakes and waterways across Canada which have been designated for this.

The Sandy Pond Alliance will be holding a rally outside the courthouse on Duckworth Street commencing at 8:30 AM on February 27, 2013.

Pass it on and see you there!

What the frack is happening on the West Coast!?!

Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) projects are set to begin on the west coast of Newfoundland. For background information and public documents on the (mis-ad)venture, please see C-NLOPB environmental assessment resources.

In other news, the Corner Brook city council has approved in principle a plan to drill for minerals in the community's watershed. It's an altogether rosy outlook for the environment on the West Coast.
