Big turn-out for Christina Lake meeting to oppose incinerator!

Last winter we told you about a preposterous proposal to build an industrial waste incinerator in scenic Christina Lake, BC. It looks like the community is not going to take this lying down.

Monica Phillips just wrote: The meeting last night was a huge success -- 400 people really energized with Paul [Connett] and Raimund (local presenter). It was very evident the huge numbers against this. Lots of plugs from Paul re the Vancouver incinerator situation -- you can watch the presentation when we get it up on our site. I'll let you know...

Check out this amazing video produced by two local kids to Protect Christina Lake. The future is in good hands...

So Penner is closing the USA border to trash even if Whistler and Cowichan have binding current contracts with an american landfill?
also please read this weeks article..
ZERO WASTE is ZERO WASTE!
lets clarify that
Suzuki and WCWC are not pro landfill just because they are opposed to waste to energy..
