K'JIPUKTUK (HALIFAX) - The Ecology Action Centre, Sierra Club Atlantic Canada, and Council of Canadians express their solidarity with Pictou Landing First Nation and neighbouring communities in their fight to defend and clean up their home waters.
“The ongoing pollution and contamination of a once pristine coastal estuary and beach is a disgrace. It is absolutely the responsibility of the province of Nova Scotia to clean up this site once and for all” says Angela Giles, Council of Canadians.
From the raging torrents of the Niagara River to the placid Welland Canal one can walk for ten miles through the wooded forest gardens of the Niagara Escarpment. Here in some patches, old growth giant oaks and maples soar above wild ginger and may apple. This shady glen has spectacular lookouts over the Niagara Fruit Belt to Lake Ontario, such as Queenston Heights and the Woodend Conservation area. These wilds overwhelm relics of 19th century assaults on nature, such as lime kilns, a “haunted” “ghost” tunnel under which the Bruce Trail travel and the stone ruins of the abandoned Third Welland Canal.

TORONTO – The overwhelming response to a panel interview with David Crombie, Paul Bedford, Jane Fairburn and Jack Diamond, moderated by renowned journalist John Lorinc and keynote address by former mayor David Miller, resulted in NOJetsTO looking for a larger venue. Supporters for the NOJetsTO campaign flocked from across Toronto to fill the OISE auditorium on a chilly Monday night, making the event an outright success.
“The event was a success and the packed house confirmed that the support for NOJetsTO is enormous, spans the GTA and is growing day by the day.” NoJetsTO chair Anshul Kapoor said. “It is clear that Torontonians can see beyond Porter Airlines misleading advertising campaign, and want to save their waterfront.”
