Rally against mega-quarry on Kluscap (Kellys) Mountain, mining in protected areas

Saturday, December 16, 2017 - 12:00

There will be a rally of support for protection of Kluscap (Kellys) Mountain in Cape Breton & Protected Areas in Nova Scotia general this Saturday at noon, protesting against the attack from the NS Mining Association who want to build a giant quarry on Kluscap Mountain similar to the one at the Canso Causeway to Cape Breton (Porcupine Mountain).

Storm date in the event of bad weather on Saturday is the same time the next day - Sunday, December 17 at noon.

We will be gathering just off the Trans-Canada Highway at the junction with the Kempt Head Road, just before the Seal Island Bridge on Boularderie Island. Everyone from across the province is encouraged to come and show their support for this Mi'kmaq sacred site and for Nova Scotia's protected natural areas. 

Note: Kluscap or Kellys Mountain is the big hill drivers ascend & descend just before the Seal Island bridge in Cape Breton on the way to Sydney or vice-versa if heading to the mainland from Sydney. The plan is to walk across the Seal Island Bridge to Kluscap Mountain. The event will be led by Grandmothers, Elders and members of the Mi’kmaq Nation and will be supported by citizens from across the province. Please come and show your support.
