Vote NO on Prop 5


by Charles C. Morrison

The Atlantic Chapter urges a resounding  “no” vote on November 5 for the proposition to amend Section 1 of Article 14 of the State Constitution, the “forever wild” provision, to allow NYCO Minerals Inc. to mine wollastonite ore on a 200-acre parcel of Adirondack forest preserve, a.k.a. Lot 8.  This lot adjoins one of NYCO’s currently operating open pit mines, the Lewis mine, in the Lake Champlain Valley in the Town of Lewis, Essex County.

Chapter needs legal funds to consolidate victories in Adirondacks

In May, the Sierra Club and Protect the Adirondacks won two decisions in the Appellate Division of the NYS Supreme Court in our lawsuit against the proposed mega-development near the hamlet of Tupper Lake, winning a motion to go forward with an appeal on the discovery process, and denying the developer's motion to shorten our time to file our papers.
