20110427scene1.jpg 20110427scene2.jpg
WHERE: Highway 124 near Melancthon, Ontario
WHEN: 10 a.m. on Tuesday April 26
WHAT: A march from Toronto to the heart of Ontario’s potato farm region to protest a proposed mega-quarry continued on its fifth and last day yesterday. The last leg of the walk started at a doughnut shop at the intersections of Highway 89 and 124 in Shelburne at 9 a.m. under a thick fog. The group of about 30 grew in size as it made its way up to a farm in Melancthon, stopping for coffee and ceremonial offerings of tobacco by First Nations representatives at creeks along the way.
