Halton Region opposes St Marys application
By Andy Bateman
May 25, 2009 – An article in last Friday’s Milton Canadian Champion
reports that Halton Region has added its name to the list of municipalities
objecting to an application by St Marys Cement for a licence to operate a
quarry at the border of Flamborough and Milton, just north of Burlington.
Last week, regional council
approved staff to submit the municipality’s objection to the licence
application to Ontario’s
Ministry of Natural Resources, which received comments on the application until
The City of Hamilton
and the Town of Milton
have already submitted their objections, along with Conservation Halton.
A number of concerns about the
proposal remain unaddressed, according to the municipalities, including
environmental and hydrogeological issues and the impact on local roads.
