Together, we say “No Newport Silicon Smelter” Not here! Not now! Not ever!
Stop Hi Test Sand (now known as PacWest Silicon) from building a proposed smelter in our dense rural residential area.
Bring public awareness by providing factual information, host public meetings, and maintain a Lawyer to aid in this cause.
CANSS is ready to do everything legally within our means to stop the proposed silicon smelter. Through generous citizen support, we have retained legal counsel taking our cause into the judicial system.
We are happy to work alongside other groups and individuals determined to stop the smelter; each of us being responsible for our own actions, intentions and agenda.
As we stand firm to protect our clean air, water and rural way of life that draws people to this area, CANSS continues to encourage growth not detrimental to the populace or environment.
CANSS is dedicated to serve the citizens in our area. We are the voice of the people!
No Newport Silicon Smelter!
