The paper discusses how, at the start of this decade, there were local politicians and urban planners who are targeting the moraine for a new housing development; as well, in Richmond Hill, there was an ongoing battle unfolding over plans to build a sprawling series of sub-divisions that would house 100,000 people that would bury a huge swath of the moraine under a concrete tidal wave. Finally, the paper relates that in Caledon region, proposals were sounded that called for the introduction of quarries - quarries which it was feared might cause harm to natural habitats and to groundwater reserves (Bocking, 2001).
