Extinguished: Lafarge’s alternative fuel project rejected (Dec. 9, 2008)
Lake Ontario Waterkeeper presents Living at the Barricades
The Ontario Court of Appeal will not hear an appeal from Lafarge Canada Inc about its alternative fuels application. The project proposed to burn old tires and plastic products as an “alternative” fuel source for its Bath, Ontario kilns. On today’s show Mark and Krystyn examine the outcome of the case, and consider why this “victory” includes both gains a losses. We also hear from Lake Ontario Waterkeeper’s co-applicant Gord Downie, who tells us about why he felt the need to stand up as a citizen of the area.
