Sterling Belliveau, Minister of Environment, Please Stop the Quarry from being opened near Whale Lake,Walden, Nova Scotia.


This quarry would threaten species on the Endangered Species list including the Mainland Nova Scotia Moose, Snapping Turtle and Nighthawk.

It would ruin the fragile ecosystem which currently supports a large variety of rare species of plants and amphibians.

It would contaminate a spring and wetlands that lead to Whale Lake which is the headwaters for the Mush-a-mush River System where endangered Atlantic Salmon spawn.

With asphalt production and up to 50 trucks per day, the air quality would be ruined in a now pristine wilderness area thus affecting the health of neighbors as well as flora and fauna.
