At the April 29th speaking event in Guelph presenters announced plans for a May 7 day of action to protect the Hanlon Creek. Everyone is invited to the parking lot of the Guelph Youth Music Center at 9:30 AM on Friday May 7. Once everyone arrives we will distribute flyers about the role Carson Reid plays in the development of the business park, and then spread out to deliver those flyers to people’s door steps.

When: 9:30 AM Friday May 7
More information about Carson Reid
Carson Reid is a construction company in Guelph. You might have seen their name on the Wellington Water Watchers website in regards to their involvement in the Dolime Quary, an envrionmental nightmare operating just west of the Hanlon Expressway. Or you might have read about them in the paper after they illegally clear cutted a parcel of trees near Victoria and Maltby.
Now it appears they have plans to do work in the Hanlon Creek Wetland Compex. A post on the Ward 2 blog indicates that a 1.38 acre residential development within the boundaries of phase 1 “is to be sold and conveyed to Carson Reid.” (http://ward2guelph.wordpress.com/2009/11/02/hcbp-info/). When it comes to respecting our environment Carson Reids has a terrible track record. We can’t let a developmer like them on the Hanlon Creek Wetland Complex. We can’t let any developer on the Hanlon Creek Wetland Complex.
