New Environmental Group Formed
Cape Breton Post, February 13, 1999
A new environmental group has emerged.
The Citizens Alliance for the Protection of the
Environment (CAPE) is gathering biweekly to
determine ways to improve environmental policies
in this area.
Doug MacKinlay, interim chair of the group, said
they are addressing issues that are not within the
Joint Action Group's (JAG) mandate - which
includes the remediation of the Sydney tar ponds
and coke oven site.
"They are a single issue group," he added.
The two areas of focus for the group are the
chlorination of the regional municipality's water
supply and the need for a sewage treatment facility.
The group is presently doing research on the topics
for self-education so they can use the information
during upcoming campaigns.
There next meeting will be held 6:30 p.m. Sunday,
Feb. 21 at 156 Falmouth St., Sydney. Anyone
seeking information may contact MacKinlay,
