The Council of Canadians has long supported community opposition to proposed quarry near Bobcaygeon, Ontario.
Council of Canadians honorary chairperson spoke at a fundraiser in April 2014 for residents fighting the quarry.
In March 2014, Kawartha Lakes This Week reported, "The township of Trent Lakes approved the quarry’s zoning application in 2012. Peterborough County also signed off on the application last June. The quarry, owned by Dewdney Mountain Farms Ltd. of Elmvale, is located on Ledge Road, just north of Bobcaygeon. Residents opposed to it fought for two years to have the application scrapped but it was approved in 2012. It sits on about 400 acres and is a crushed and dimensional limestone quarry. They object to the impact it will have on their quality of life, property values, the environment, wildlife and the potential damage to infrastructure from trucks hauling aggregates through Bobcaygeon."
