Many members of the community were surprised at the move by the Hamilton Conservation Authority to move the vote for the privatization of the Ancaster Well.
The fence is up and as of January 1st - a signed waiver and swipe card will be necessary. This fence is illegal and against the restricted land covenants.

Why do we need a legal fund?
The Hamilton Conservation has essentially just privatized a previously free source of drinking water.
If that alone doesn't concern then the details around the decision to put a fence around the Ancaster Well should.
There is no health order to close the well, this is a voluntary action to abide by a standard that doesn't have to apply.
The HCA could rename the well as an Artisan water source put up a sign and walk away.
The HCA has voted to (less one Councillor Aiden Johnson who voted against) on motion of Ancaster Councillor Lloyd Ferguson fence the well and stop testing.
That is not what the Ancaster community was hoping for.
This is a big deal and needs further investigation, please donate and support our efforts to allow free access for water at the Ancaster.
