CORE Burlington Virtual Town Hall

Zombie Quarry Stalks Mt. Nemo…
For the past two years, the volunteers at CORE Burlington have been fighting Nelson Aggregates’ intention to blast their way to a mega-quarry on Burlington’s escarpment. 

This Town Hall is to update you on our progress and let you know what our upcoming plans are. We have some inspiring speakers lined up. We’re intending to energize you. 
This is Nelson’s second go ’round at attempting to increase their open-pit mining operation on Mt. Nemo. Nelson was beaten back in 2012. We aim to beat them again. But we cannot do this without the continuing broad-based support that has inspired us throughout the past two years. We now have 2000 supporters! Come to our meeting. Find out what you can do to stand up for Mt. Nemo.

This is the grass roots against the Goliath.

As a community, we have the responsibility to honour, care for and respect all the Creation gives to provide us with life. This includes the land, water, air, fire, animals, plants and our ancestors.

The Anishinabek Peoples have utilized this land for millennia and we would like to acknowledge their direct descendants, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, as the rightful caretakers and titleholders of this land upon which we live, work and conduct ourselves. We acknowledge our treaty relationship and responsibilities to both the land and these original peoples.

We also recognize that this land is rich in pre-contact history and customs, which includes the Anishinabek and Haudenosaunee and since European contact, has and continues to become home for Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. And it is in the spirit and intent of the Dish With One Spoon, wampum agreement whereby we will collectively care for and respect the land, water, animals and each other in the interests of peace and friendship and for the benefit of not only ourselves but of our future descendants.  

The HEN Office resides on Treaty 22, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. For more information on Treaty 22 go to: http://mncfn.ca/treaty2223/
