            Eric Gillespie, the lawyer for the appellants against the Ontario Municipal Board ruling on the proposed Dewdney mega quarry east of Bobcaygeon, presented their case at Newmarket Court on Friday, Dec. 9.

            Judge Mark Edwards needs to find one error of

law in order to send the case to Divisional Court for a full appeal of the 2015 Ontario Municipal Board decision that gave the quarry the go-ahead.

            Gillespie presented over 10 errors of law in his argument.

            The judge said he will bring down a verdict before the new year. Each side settled on a payment of $15,000 for court costs to the winner of the case.
