    Default Pending Environmental Disaster!

    We live on a pristine spring fed lake just 1 hour north of Montreal (Ste Adele St Sauver,St Hippolite) in the heart of Laurentian foothills tourist area.
    A mineing company has discovered serious quantities of iron ore and titanium and plan to start drilling shortly in this cottage country all in preparation of open pit mining.
    Our research confirms the facts.

    Local papers are full of the disastrous news and local Mayors up in arms.

    Laws that are in place would permit this environmental and economic catastrophe however the politicians have set up a web site poll to get opinions which we hope might sway the authorities.

    This poll, while in french, is easy to fill in and you will receive a reply to confirm that it was you that voted.

    Your online vote very much appreciated.
    Thank you.

    I'd imagine that commodity exports are a big part of Canada's GDP.

    Yup, the Queen owns the mineral rights to my land. And its pine trees!

    Fortunately, inactive crown-owned mineral rights in southern Ontario have been "suspended" recently, to placate the cottager types. But the Ontario government could reverse that policy whenever they feel like it

    The property rights system in Canada is archaic and bizarre...

    The exploration firm quotes it is enviro friendly and will re plant etc etc.
    Funny, I don't believe them as so far everything has been cloak and dagger like.

    Why would the vote from a hillbilly in Kentuck be considered in this poll?
