Have you ever poked a stick into a hornet’s nest just to see what would happen? Well we’re thinking that McGuinty’s promise to review the Aggregate Resources Act has had a similar effect. It sure has wakened a lot of folks to the load of problems with the current Act and the way it’s administered. So much so that the special committee tasked with the job of hearing the public input seems to have gone out of their way to avoid hearing from all who sought to be heard.

Did you see the way they did a ‘drive by’ visit to the Melancthon Mega-Quarry site?

As reported in AWARE Simcoe June 30 2012 …
“Melancthon residents asked an all-party committee of MPPs who were holding a hearing on the Aggregate Resources Act review in Orangeville on Wednesday to visit the proposed mega-quarry area. At the 11th hour, they agreed. Local farmers scrambled to be ready to greet them and were waiting in a group by the side of the road when the MPPs’ bus arrived. And drove past them. And headed up the road, turned round and drove right past them again.”
What are they trying to avoid? The truth?
