Sept. 23 Public meeting looks at options.

Carp-Stittsville-Kanata area residents turned out to a public information session Monday night to discuss their next moves after finding out a week ago the provincial environment ministry approved an environmental assessment plan to expand Waste Management Inc.’s Carp landfill site. One option is a judicial review of the approval in court where a judge would determine if all requirements of the Environmental Assessment Act and the approved Terms of Reference were met.

Over a week since approval and still no update on MOE website.

It has been over a week since the MOE botched the announcement of the Carp dump approval. Yet the MOE website which is meant to inform all Ontarians of the status of Environmental Assessments in the province has nothing about the approval. WHY THE SECRECY?????

If the new Carp dump is built visitors to the new Tanger Outlet Mall will have a great view of the Twin Peaks dump.

Open letter to Premier Wynne

Open letter to Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario

When you became Premier, you committed to a more open and accountable government and to give municipalities more say in issues and projects that had significant impact on their citizens. In your throne speech you committed to listening to the needs of communities and ensuring that local towns and cities had more “say” in proposed development projects.

They must have a voice in their future and a say in their integrated, regional development so that local populations are involved from the beginning if there is going to be a gas plant or a casino or a wind plant or a quarry [or a landfill] in their hometown. Because our economy can benefit from these things but only if we have willing hosts.

Province ignores concerns raised by city!

The province of Ontario gives city a slap in the face with approval of new dump.
