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.

    Too much gravel extraction is bad for our health and our climate – we’re supposed to be preserving as much biodiversity as possible in this critical time in our history on this planet. Stop the excessive gravel extraction in Ontario!

    I live in Brant county on the Paris-Galt Moraine system.

    We have been struggling with aggregate mining, Wash ponds & despite saying they won’t, somehow excavating below the water table!!

    This puts our already overstressed potable water aquifer systems under further peril.

    Added to that is the building of over 1,000 new homes and we have a dangerous future ahead. Hydrology reports tell us we could run-out of water in another 4 years!!!

    A moratorium is essential on on the giving out of licences for any additional gravel extraction sites, until the existing companies have been required to rehabilitate the sites that have been mined out in a timely fashion (without sneaky delaying tactics to avoid this requirement), and until the totally undemocratic denial of citizens and communities to have any say on what happens to their land and communities is reversed.
