What is Mega? The Melancthon Quarry Numbers
In the spring of 2011, The Highland Companies filed an application for a mega limestone quarry northeast of Toronto, Canada in the rural landscape of Melancthon Township. Large numbers driving the conversation were very difficult to comprehend. To improve access to this important information, KAP created an infographic that translates the data into more familiar units.
This infographic resonated with those opposing the quarry application and was published in the Summer 2013 issue of 'In The Hills' magazine. A video for David Suzuki, Co-Founder of the David Suzuki Foundation and an award-winning scientist, environmentalist and broadcaster, was being made with the infographic until the quarry application was denied and the project was shelved.
