Citizens, Quebec Municipality Denounce $96 Million Suite by Canada Carbon
MiningWatch Canada and Coalition Québec Meilleure Mine denounce a $96 million suit by junior mining company Canada Carbon against Grenville-sur-la-Rouge (pop. 2,800), a small municipality attempting to protect its citizens and its environment from open pit mining. The community, located between Montebello and Lachute at the confluence of the Calumet and the Ottawa rivers, has been opposing the project for the last two years and, in November 2017, elected a new Mayor and Council to reflect more effectively this opposition.
