Despite the long, contentious history of the hog factory, without prior public input, Stone Mills Council chose to side with the interests of one individual rather than the well-being of the greater community, and they approved the development of an intensive hog factory in Erinsville.
The location of this industrial livestock operation was a bad idea in 2001 and it is still a bad idea today. The community of Erinsville in Eastern Ontario is threatened by the development of its first industrial hog operation: on fractured limestone, in a tourist region, among rural residences and cottages, behind the hamlet of Erinsville, close to Beaver Lake and White Lake in the Salmon River Watershed. We are driven by Stone Mills Council’s failure to invite public input prior to approving this project, the absence of any benefit whatsoever to the community and most importantly, the clear threat to residents’ health and safety.
Help support our goal of raising $50,000 by September 15, 2020!
In response, Concerned Citizens for our Community Environments Inc. hired experts who have exposed the risks to groundwater and surface water and thus the clear risk to public health and safety. In addition, a consultant has identified multiple errors in the Nutrient Management Strategy. Recently, we retained legal counsel who is working with us to develop a legal strategy.
There is still time to stop this project but we need your financial support to pay for the expertise needed to do so.
Please contribute generously so we can access the best possible resources and tools to protect our community by preventing industrial operations from setting up in Erinsville.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
