Living at the Barricades: Digging Deep (Dec 15/08)
Lake Ontario Waterkeeper Presents: Living at the Barricades
Nelson Aggregate wants to expand its rock quarry on the Niagara Escarpment near Burlington, ON. On this week’s show, Mark and Krystyn look at the proposed plan and its potential impacts on the area, as well as the decision that was reached at the preliminary hearing. We speak with musician and local organizer Sarah Harmer, who’s group PERL of Burlington has been working to deny Nelson the permits to extend the life of the quarry. We’ll also hear from Michael Brown, a Toronto-based environmental artist, who’s latest exhibition Urban Canoe Trip documented his 10-day journey through Toronto’s river’s and creeks.
Music on this week’s show:
Birds - Dawn Blythe and Dave Clark
Music Box - Jake Taylor
