Today, Pancontinental Resources announced their decision to terminate their Option Agreement on the McBride Project in southeastern Ontario.
This is great news for the LACC, the Lake Associations, and the community at large. It demonstrates the strength of a community that is working together.
The LACC remains focused on the activities of the McBride site property owner, Hastings Highland Resources, and respects PanCon’s decision to abandon this southeastern Ontario site and focus on their projects in mining friendly Northern Ontario.
Their press release can be found here:
The Environmental Bill of Rights (EBR) gives all Ontarians certain environmental rights. That means that all of us – ordinary citizens, students, politicians, policymakers, business people and activists – have legal rights and formal procedures for participating in environmental matters.

“Investors should be warned: the McBride Project is facing strong opposition by First Nation and affected community members and represents a significant risk forward,” says Ugo Lapointe of MiningWatch Canada, who released a new report at the Limerick Township Community Center.
As we gather momentum and work to strengthen our defense against the McBride mining project, we recognize that support from our community is critical to success.
Currently, LACC activities are being managed and funded by a small group of dedicated individuals.

Community members are concerned that the proposed low-grade, potentially acid generating, nickel-cobalt-copper mining project would irreparably alter or destroy this sensitive area.
The Limerick and Crowe Valley Watershed Conservation areas are home to numerous wetlands, lakes and rivers, and provide essential habitat to many species of fish, mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians, including several threatened and endangered species.
This area also provides drinking water, as well as recreational and tourism opportunities to thousands of Ontarians each year.
