This evening Hampton Council met with about 130 community members in attendance(usually 5 is a crowd). They voted unanimously not to allow any seismic testing within the Hampton town boundaries. They are also wriitng a letter to Minister Northrup requesting that he not renew the 2 Windsor licenses when they come due in the next few months. The Hampton Town Council has also made a request that no new permits be given for drilling gas wells in the watershed of the Kennebecasis.
So it was a full day...a little light. The clouds still very much surround us. Our neighbour Penobsquis is continuing with its painful hearings starting tomorrow for the rest of the week. Please go if you can. And there is the vast problem of the unincorporated areas and their lack of power. As one individual put it no town is an island; we are all interconnected. We need people to look into incorporation or how a town can extend their borders to include the unincorporated areas around them.
FOR NOW...a BIG THANK YOU...it is good to be a part of such a movement where a call can go out (yesterday...unbelievable) and a group can receive so much response and so quickly. We will persevere and we will recover this province.
Peace and Solidarity...Carl Wolpin for Hampton Water First
