Mike Schreiner Articulates It Well
Are provincial policies and practices pitting quarries against our water and farmland?
Our province is the largest consumer of aggregate, and is also responsible for coordinating the approval and operation of pits and quarries. How do these conflicting roles come into play in Guelph where safeguarding city water and the continued operation of the Dolime Quarry seem to collide?
Step Up to Protect Our Water

1. Sign the petition at mikeschreiner.ca
2. Come out and work with Mike to get signatures -contact firstname.lastname@example.org
