Just in case you haven't heard about it yet - although it seems to be quite well publicized - there is going to be an event called Foodstock next Sunday, October 16th from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, in Honeywood, Ontario. This is an event in support of the movement to stop the proposed mega-quarry in Melancthon township. I've written about this before; it's a cause well worth supporting.

The CBC had an interesting interview with the principals of the proposed quarry yesterday; and a right pair of whinging 1%ers they sound too. They are sooo misunderstood. Aw, diddums.

If you can't get out there to help kick this egregious plan to the curb, please consider making a donation. And give deeper consideration to the evils of NAFTA, which works hard to destroy local community control over the activities of multi-national corporations. The Stop the Quarry movement is getting a lot of attention and momentum, but I really hope it can connect to the big picture and get a movement going to repeal NAFTA.

Will you be there? I'm rounding up a bunch of friends to make the trip- still haven't figured out transportation yet but would love to say hello if you are there!

Yes, I intend to go. If it's as big as it's supposed to be, I don't know how easy it will be to meet up, but we could try. I would like that.

Thanks, Happy-gal. Glad you like it. And it's amazing what people think they can get away with, isn't it? Even worse if they turn out to be right...!
