CORE Comments on Bonnefield’s Purchase of Melancthon Land

The citizens’ groups that led the movement to protect thousands of acres of Class 1 farmland in Melancthon, Ontario welcome Bonnefield Financial to the community. Bonnefield has purchased the 6,500-acres of potato fields owned by the Highland Companies, including the land once proposed to become a 2300-acre mega quarry. After several years of uncertainty about the fate of the farmland, this is a new beginning.

The Highland Companies Quarry

BACKGROUND ON THE HIGHLAND COMPANIES QUARRY The Highland Companies, represented by John Lowndes, is owned by a holding company called Baupost out of Boston.  It has recently undertaken a land assembly of well over 8,000 acres of prime agricultural land in and around Horning Mills, Honeywood, Redickville and other parts of Melancthon and Mulmur Townships.

Wind Turbine Issues

To be clear, CORE is not against wind energy.  What does worry us is the production of wind energy too close to rural homes. Residents in many parts of the world who live in close proximity to turbines have complained of susbstantive negative health problems, and many have been forced  to abandon their homes. We are trying to prevent this from happening in Mulmur Township.
