Spalding et al. (2020) have presented an excellent paper on the structure and timing of joints at Prince Edward County in the southern Ontario carbonate platform, arguing that these formed entirely as a result of intra-plate stress associated with a major plate reorganization event at about 100Ma. We would like to reinterpret the geochronology and bring to light additional information to challenge the conclusions and add to the discussion.
