We had a successful rally today to save the Experimental Lakes Area (ELA). The rally was held jointly with CUSP (whose concern was the Ring of Fire) in front of the Italian Cultural Centre where Minister Greg Rickford was attending a luncheon. The ELA are located in Minister Rickford’s riding.
Although negotiations on continuing operations of the ELA are close to completion, it appears that the Federal Government is holding up the process. The ELA will be forced to close in 2 weeks unless a deal is reached. We need to keep pressure on the Federal Government and Minister Rickford.
