What will the FCPG Committee Do?

 The outcome of this quarry license application will be strongly influenced by our elected local and provincial politicians. That includes our town and regional councillors, our MPP, along with input from various provincial agencies. Ultimately, the final decision will be made after an LPAT hearing (Local Planning Appeal Tribunal hearing). 

  • We are currently collaborating with Caledon and Peel Regional councillors and planners to oppose this mega quarry application.  Residents from Cataract, Alton, Belfountain, Caledon Village, Brimstone and others are included in our working group. 

  • We are working with consultants, professionals and others with the expertise to formulate a compelling opposition to this application. We’ve hired an environmental lawyer and will need to hire a planner, a hydrogeologist and others to do the job properly. All of this will require considerable funding and resources. 

  • We are engaging municipal and regional councillors as well as our MPP to truly represent the interests of their local constituents, rather than a Brazilian owned cement company.  

  • There will be a municipal and provincial election in June 2022. We intend to make this mega quarry a dominant election issue for all candidates representing this area.

  • We are collaborating with the Town of Caledon and provincial officials to incorporate sensible minimum setback requirements for all quarry and pit applications.

 

All of these efforts require considerable funding and resources. Our committee and volunteers can’t do this alone.

All our committee members reside in the west Caledon area.  We’ve all lived in and raised our families in Caledon over the past 30 years.  We are:
