Form letters with the correct addresses and email can be found here (Premier Dexter) (Minister Belliveau). We invite you to alter them to suit yourself or write your own.

If you love where you live, work, and recreate, and the reasons you chose to be here, then we need you to join us in working collectively to be heard and to reshape how the government addresses the needs, values and concerns of Nova Scotia communities and the people who live there.

We are asking the Minister to require ALVA Construction, to maintain their production level per the status quo , as practised today and over the past ten years and limit the EA approval to land excluded by the 800 meter blasting setback.
