Petition to Stop the Proposed Quarry

Premier Ford, keep your Promise to Milton

TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:

WHEREAS everyone in Ontario deserves clean drinking water, clean air to breathe and a safe community to live in;

WHEREAS the ongoing pursuit to obtain a licence for the Reid Road Reservoir Quarry, if granted, puts at risk Campbellville and Milton’s water and will negatively impact the community’s air quality and safety; 

WHEREAS pedestrians, school children, cyclists, and local commuters and those on the 401 will be endangered by the 60,000 gravel truck trips projected annually and the blasting within 100 meters of the 401;

WHEREAS the Town of Milton and the Region have all confirmed by resolution that they are opposed to the proposed Quarry; 

WHEREAS in 2020 Premier Ford at a public meeting in Milton said he would make sure the proposed Reid Road Reservoir Quarry doesn’t happen, which was confirmed on March 27th , 2024 by his PC candidate for Milton, Zeeshan Hamid, at a community meeting;

WHEREAS it is a complete waste of taxpayers time and money to continue with a proponent driven Environmental Assessment of the proposed Quarry, which the community and all levels of government are opposed to;  

WE THE UNDERSIGNED petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to stop wasting taxpayers money; to terminate the Environmental Assessment; to deny a licence to extract aggregate or to operate an asphalt/concrete reprocessing facility at the Reid Quarry in Campbellville; and to permanently protect the subject lands by making it conservation lands for enjoyment by all residents of Ontario.

    Under no circumstance do I want this quarry to proceed. Will destroy so much of the quality of life we enjoy being a resident of Campbellville

    We are all responsible for protecting this land, its people, and the animals who live here.

    We cannot allow a quarry to pollute and destroy habitats, or harm the families living in surrounding communities.

    Please be a steward of the earth, and a friend, neighbor, and protector to your fellow human beings.

    Stop this quarry once and for all.

    For the health and safety of our community and families, I am strictly opppsed to the reopening of the Reid Road quarry. It will ruin our drinking water that we rely on and the particles from the mining process will damage our lungs.
