[GreenYes] Re: First victory in fight to block Metro Vancouver's incinerators


Congratulations Helen, to you and to the residents of Port Moody - we're trying to follow your lead here in Durham Region, Ontario. It gives us hope.

Subject: [GreenYes] First victory in fight to block Metro Vancouver's incinerators

** apologies for cross postings **

This week citizens of Port Moody (Canada) are celebrating the defeat of a proposal to build a "waste-to-energy" garbage gasification plant in their community. Congratulations to the community, and also to the municipal government for providing an open public consultation before deciding whether to pursue the project. Visit the Port Moody website for a summary of the consultation process and the decision, taken last week, not to proceed with the project:
