About Us

Action Champlain – who are we?

Action Champlain is a non-profit organization founded in 2011 by residents of the Township of Champlain. It was initiated by this group of residents in reaction to the first announcement of the cement plant project at the very same location, as the Village of L’Orignal and the surrounding population were already and still are affected by contaminants and nuisances of two heavy industries, a steel mill and a quarry.

Action Champlain advocates public policy approaches that reconcile economic development, quality of life and environmental protection in the public interest of the citizens of the Township of Champlain.

Petition to the Government of Canada

Konstantine Malakos has authored this House of Commons petition with the input of his team and Action Champlain. 

Whereas:

  • The Government of Canada has made a commitment to carbon neutrality;
  • Highly polluting industries often have the opposite impact;
  • The Department of Fisheries and Oceans has guidelines for the use of explosives in or near Canadian fishing waters;
  • There is a need to establish guidelines on all impacts (air, water, sound, shockwave) caused by the use of explosives near residential areas; and
  • The Supreme Court of Canada ruled that the federal government has the right to overrule provincial decisions on climate change issues, and Canada recently adopted legislation to respect the principles of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to:

1. Stop construction of all new facilities used by highly polluting industries, such as cement plants, nuclear waste facilities, factories, and so on, until there has been in-depth consultation (accepting refusal, if that is the case) with the indigenous communities whose natural surroundings will be affected by the project;

2. Request that a comprehensive review be conducted by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans on the impacts on wildlife if the construction project affects interprovincial or international waters; and

3. Request that a review be conducted by a neutral third party and not by firms hired by the companies attempting to build the projects, and that the costs of these reviews be paid for by those companies.

 Sign this petition, open till March 2, 2022 11:33 a.m.

Come protest against the cement plant August 17th!

 IMPORTANT! … PLEASE SHOW UP!

Next Tuesday, August 17th at 7 pm in front of the Colacem Quarry at 2410 County Rd 17, L’Orignal, come and participate in this protest organized by Konstantine Malakos to show our opposition to the cement plant project.

Let us show solidarity and determination towards this insane project for our beautiful region, a project imposed on our community of the Champlain Township by the CUPR.

This action and presence by our community is extremely important to draw attention towards the media, our elected officials and decision makers.
