STOP THE DUMP! Special protest at the quarry

Friday, March 21, 2014 from 3:00 to 4:00 pm, the weekly protest against the dump will focus on the entrance to the Carmeuse property where Carmeuse wants to drain a lake and Walker wants to fill an active quarry with garbage. 

Driving north on Embro Road aka Foldens Line from the 401, it is just north of the four way stop at Beachville Rd (which in Ingersoll is called Charles Street).

Like the Arcade Fire concert recently, this gathering has a dress code: come prepared for pond hockey, or fishing, or ice-fishing, or with a boat, oar, paddle, fishing rod, landing net, bird-watching gear and googles, etc. 

This proposed dump is next to the Thames River, which flows down through London. Any disturbance to the Thames Watershed affects us all. This garbage, to be dumped right into a quarry which is below the water table, would include Toronto's "residential, industrial, commercial and institutional solid waste, contaminated brownfield soil and asbestos", according to Walker, the landfill company! The quarry leaks like a sieve! The Thames is contaminated enough! Please help stop this incredibly dangerous dump!
