Residents To Hold Meeting On Potash Mining

A grassroots meeting is being organized for tomorrow night in order to discuss the possible impact and risks of a new potash mine in Millstream by Atlantic Potash Corp.

Co-organizer Marjorie Goodard lives in the Millstream area and she tells CHSJ News residents need to talk to each other about the potential risks of such a project.

She believes residents should be proactive instead of reactive, especially in light of the residents of Penobsquis blaming water problems on Potash Corp and its mining operation.

She says residents are not opposed to the mine but wants to ensure the protection of their water and the environment. She says a contract will drawn up and will be presented to Atlantic Potash Corp.

The meeting will take place at 7pm at Berwick Hall.
