Join us on Jan. 25 for something big.

For decades, the gravel mining industry has blasted, dug, crushed, and trucked across Ontario with what looks like a license to do whatever the heck they want.

On Tuesday, Jan. 25 at 7 p.m. we’re announcing something big with the Reform Gravel Mining Coalition. Together we’re launching a campaign to empower people across the province to protect water, land, species-at-risk, and communities from uncontrolled gravel mining.

Gravel mining changes our environment forever. It damages communities and accelerates the climate crisis by feeding sprawl, highways, cement production, and other massive causes of greenhouse gases.

The Reform Gravel Mining Coalition has an ambitious yet realistic plan to challenge all of this.

Special guests include musician Sarah Harmer, Tim Gray, executive director of Environmental Defence, environmental lawyer David Donnelly, and Courtney Skye from Protect the Tract.

We need you to be there because uncontrolled and unnecessary gravel mining affects us all. It will take all of us working together to make a difference.

For the wild,
Katie Krelove
Ontario Campaigner
