For immediate release…..Cambridge, ON...March 28th, 2022…. Alternatives Denied was a book released in 2000 that was a compilation of critiques from concerned citizens on the Highway 7 Kitchener-Guelph Ontario proposal.

The 90 page book features articles by George Bechtel, Ben Bennett, Douglas Graham, Judith Greenwood-Speers, Julie Harwood, Paul Langan, Dave Locky, Jennifer Niece, Michael Parkinson, Steve Vogel, and Liz Wharton.

Paul Langan, states, "22 years later it is good to reflect back on this publication printed in 2000 and see why this new highway was such a bad idea. As a historical document it is a strong testimonial to a flawed process."

All net profits from the sale of this publication will go to Haven House, a home in Cambridge for females and kids fleeing abusive situations.

In 1968, Minister Goode of the United Church of Hespeler Ontario was looking to buy some canoes and could not find some decent canoes at a fair price. Bill Coleman knew how to work with fibreglass and the Minister knew about canoes. This was the innocent beginning of the Coleman Craft Canoe Company of Galt Ontario.
