The Campaign to Save the Kemptville College Farmlands
UPDATE:  On December 13th, 2021, CAPP wrote to Lisa Thompson, Ontario's Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, asking her to save the Kemptville College farmland and prevent its transfer to the Ministry of the Solicitor General.    She failed to listen and instead, transferred the land to what is now called the Ministry of Public and Business Service Delivery.

PROVINCIAL PARTY POSITIONS ON THE PROPOSED PRISON

Prior to the 2022 Ontario Provincial election, CAPP requested from each of the provincial parties, their respective positions on the proposed Kemptville prison: all opposition parties opposed paving over farmland to build a prison in Kemptville.   The Ontario Conservative party did not reply to our request.
