Water Protectors have been calling for an immediate halt in construction of the twinning Windsor Causeway and have been camped out at the Treaty Truckhouse 2 since late spring. While negotiations have been stagnant, it is reported that the RCMP are planning on breaking up the Treaty Truckhouse 2 encampment on Monday November 16th.
The contentious issue of twinning of the 101 near the Town of Windsor is still alive. Some folks believe it is time to get rid of the causeway and build a bridge, but they have a hard time getting heard at municipal councils, they say.
A group of environmental activists in the Annapolis Valley is calling for a radical rethink of the Avon River causeway in Windsor. Endangered salmon cannot enter the Avon River to spawn and the group has launched a letter writing campaign to call on the federal Department of Fisheries to interfere.
