Costs for NO PLACE FOR A QUARRY to move forward with the appeal of the proposed Official Plan Amendment No. OPA 18 on behalf of all concerned local citizen's, is an estimated $50,000. There also remains an invoice for the previous municipal appeal of $10,000. We are seeking to retain GillespieLaw.ca, a top law firm in Toronto who specializes in environmental and municipal law.

A DONOR will match dollar for dollar 50% of the requirement to a maximum of $30,000.

In order for NPFAQ to move forward with the appeal, we require a decision by June 14th, which will be based on the successful financial commitment from those like yourself, who oppose the quarry operations of blasting, crushing, trucking, healthy and safety risks, potential damage to our delicate water systems and air quality. Will you help us to raise $30,000 now for
 the costs of the appeal?
