Narrative: Painting by Stephen Kuzma of an actual event of the formation of "The Stop the Quarry Group" at the Tolle House in Little River, Digby County, Nova Scotia on August 18, 2002.
An American Firm was trying to establish a basalt mine and then ship the mineral to the U.S.A. This small group grew into thousands who, over a five year period, defeated the American Company and this feat will now be a part of Nova Scotia's History.
