Description

We Demand the Right

Queen’s Park Protest – April 24th 2018

New landfills are being planned for Toronto’s waste – right here in Oxford County. We’ve got to make sure that municipal governments have the right to approve these new landfills – or the GTA’s waste may soon be spread throughout rural Ontario.

We need your voice. Join the Town of Ingersoll at its planned rally against the Walker Environmental Group’s Planned Landfill.

Buses will be leaving the Oxford Street Parking Lot on April 24th 2018 at 9:00 am travelling to Queens Park, Toronto.

At approximately 11:00 am, participants will demonstrate on the lawn of Queen’s Park, spreading the message adopted by over 40 municipalities. “Local communities, municipalities and First Nations should have the right to approve or reject landfill projects in their communities”

The more, the better! Help us spread the word to any and all that may wish to protest.

The protest will run approximately two hours, with buses leaving Toronto at approximately 1:00 pm for the return trip to Ingersoll.

To have the required impact, a minimum of 100 people will be required to attend that day. Registration in advance will assure that this threshold is reached and that enough buses are available.

This is an opportunity for the community at large to come together and demonstrate to the provincial government and opposition parties that Ingersoll and Oxford County are opposed to this mega dump being forced on to our communities without local approval.

Attendees will be responsible to bring their own refreshments and food, or they can acquire it on site. Water will be provided on the buses.

Anyone wishing to volunteer to assist with the preplanning stages or helping to coordinate that day, are invited to contact the Town Office and speak with Chelsea Jibb, Curtis Tighe, or William Tigert by calling 519-485-0120 or by emailing info@ingersoll.ca.
