The Mega Quarry Defeated

On a beautiful sunny day in Ontario we welcome the glorious news that the monster Mega Quarry proposal for the Shelburne area has been dropped.

Widespread opposition to the quarry, not only from residents and local farmers, but from Canadians who flocked to opposition events such as Foodstock and Soupstock, forced the site owners' hands.

I was honoured to have been part of the small group of Artists Against the MegaQuarry, who came together to paint scenes of the area that would have been destroyed, then donated the works to help raise funds.
