Grenville-sur-la-Rouge has received a financial boost for its legal battle against Canada Carbon.
The Fédération québécoise des municipalités (FQM)—the province-wide organization of municipalities is providing $10,000 to Grenville-sur-la-Rouge toward its legal expenses.
The municipality is facing a $96-million lawsuit from the Vancouver-based mining company after council took measures to stop it from developing a graphite mine and marble quarry.
“What’s happening here could happen everywhere in Québec; our battle is one of all municipalities. We are happy that the Fédération québécoise des municipalités supports us in our efforts, “said Grenville-sur-la-Rouge mayor Tom Arnold.
In a November 16, FQM president André Genest said the organization supports the efforts of local elected representatives to freely exercise their duty to protect the environment and citizen’s rights.
