Last Saturday's Woolwich Observer carrys this story: "Gravel foes look to new MPP for support". Our former M.P.P. Leanna Pendergast had come out in support of the two local citizens' groups opposed to the proposed gravel pits in West Montrose and Conestogo. Michael Harris the new M.P.P. (Conservative) has also indicated strong interest in the issues and wishes to become involved. Mr. Harris has also been named as Environment Critic by Tim Hudak, leader of the Conservative opposition in the Legislature. It appears that the Conservatives will support the governing Liberals' pledge to review the Aggregate Act. Tony Dowling of Bridgekeepers is hoping that the Liberals go beyond a mere review and legislate protections for farmland and communities against intrusive gravel pits.
