AWARE Simcoe Public Meeting

“Water is Life”

Learn more about the Proposed Mega-Quarry in
Melancthon Township

An enormous 2300 acre aggregate pit mine has been proposed just north of Shelburne. This would be the largest quarry in Ontario and the second largest in North America. The company says 600 million litres of water per day will be pumped out of the huge pit. The water supply for an estimated 1,000,000 people would be affected. Five major river systems begin in Melancthon and flow outward in all directions. Malancthon sits firmly atop an aquifer that is a significant water resource of the Greater Golden Horseshoe region and is directly adjacent to the Alliston aquifer.

Panel: David Vander Zaag, New Tecumseth farmer

In a world coming to grips with its growing energy needs and dependence on foreign oil, wind power seems a viable alternative. But, as you will see in this stirring documentary, the answers are not always so simple. "Windfall" is the story of a community torn asunder by the not-so-gently blowing wind. "Windfall" exposes the dark side of wind energy development and the potential for highly profitable financial scams. "Windfall" is an eye opener for anyone concerned about renewable energy. Winner of the grand jury prize at recent New York Film Festival.
