We did it!

We got a couple of hundred people together at Queen's Park to tell the Ontario government that an incinerator in Courtice is a bad idea.

  • Dave Martin, Greenpeace
  • Heather Marshall - Waste campaigner for the Toronto Environmental Alliance
  • Rod Muir, Waste reduction campaigner for Sierra Club of Canada

  • Mike Schreiner, Leader of the Green Party of Ontario

In addition:

  • Wayne Ellis and Kyle performed a very inventive skit (written by Carolyn Wilson) about Nano, the clown and Mr. Big Stack (see video above)
  • Kevin Wrycraft performed an anti-incineration song that he wrote specifically for the rally

The whole rally was MC'ed by Dave Renaud of the CAW DREC. Great job Dave!
