Description is not available.

Herzenberg begins to describe how the Cane Creek Conservation Authority (CCCA), a group that opposes the reservoir, should have used political clout rather than legal tactics to derail the project. Then, however, he shares what appears to be disdain for a group he sees as representing itself as a collection of simple farmers, while in fact it consists of white-collar workers. He suspects they want to sell their soon-to-be lakefront land, and dislike OWASA's plan because it would prevent development for environmental reasons.
