Advertisment

This
week, council overwhelmingly approved a resolution from councillors John Wheat
and Steve Schmitt, asking Gravelle to cancel the licence it was given in 1974
but is only acting on now.

The
resolution also asks Gravelle to force Dufferin to file a new application for a
licence if it still wants to extract gravel from its site of more than 600
acres along Watts Pond Road.
