During the hearings of the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT), numerous errors and omissions contained in the file which was submitted to obtain an Environmental Authorization (EA) from the Ministry of the Environment, nature and Ontario Parks were unveiled.
You are aware that the provincial Ministry of the Environment, Nature Protection and Parks (MEPNP) refused our requests to revoke the Environmental Authorization for the cement plant.
This is why, on August 30th, 2022 we submitted a request to the Honourable Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Environment and Climate Change of the federal government.
This is a request to designate the L'Orignal Cement Project as a Designated Project under the Canadian Impact Assessment Act (IAA). Click HERE for more details.
We are confident that the documents sent clearly demonstrate that the proposed project has the potential to cause significant environmental impacts to components of the environment that are within federal legislative authority.
Residents of First Nations, Ontario and Quebec affected by this project deserve to have an accurate, thorough and complete impact assessment on this project.
