Last Saturday's Woolwich Observer carrys this story "Little prep time as province begins gravel pit review". The big issue seems to be the lack of time and resources dedicated towards this review of the Aggregate Resources Act. Community groups and environmental groups would like to see this review be comprehensive including going on the road and hearing from individual affected communities. Here in Woolwich that would include West Montrose, Winterbourne and Conestogo. Clearly, at the moment, the promises made, including those from our local M.P.P.'s have only partially been fulfilled by this review. Mayor Todd Cowan as well as Tony Dowling of Bridgekeepers (West Montrose) are attempting to schedule a presentation for the hearings in Toronto next week. Further the government are accepting written statements from stakeholders up untill this wednesday at 5 pm..
