Sign a petition! re Enerdu

Cavanagh Construction (Jeff Cavanagh) is going to mangle the riverbed of a beautiful natural heritage site in Almonte Ontario in order to construct a hydro project that will produce power we don’t need.  The power will go to the Ontario grid, which already has a surplus – which taxpayers have to actually pay to get rid of.

This project will damage a cascade waterfall in a wonderful setting, changing the face of a charming little town 45 minutes from downtown Ottawa.  Thrown into the mix is an endangered species of Endangered dragonfly, the Rapids Clubtail.  Changing the water levels and the rapids will further degrade the limited amount of just downstream habitat where this dragonfly’s existence has been documented.

At this writing, there almost 5000 signatures in a petition to have the Minister of the Environment intervene.  The petition is few days old.

If you could please go to the link below and sign we would very much appreciate it.  Whether you sign or not, could you please share this site?  No one in government seems to be listening.  Please help.
