A Huge Victory for logic and the power of public opinion

It was announced today that the application for the Mega Quarry in Dufferin County has been dropped and abandoned. Fierce opposition from farmers and environmentalista coupled with the public's fast-growing awareness of the fragility of our existence in a surprisingly rapidly-changing environment has led to the (for now) preservation of one of the most fertile soils in this continent. Good news indeed!
Here's my blog entry from Foodstock 2011, as well as more photos from the event.
