Action Champlain needs financial contributions to pay professional fees to appeal of UCPR's decision - February 10th, 2017

 

Action Champlain has hired two experienced lawyers, Me Ronald F. Caza and his colleague Me Érik Labelle, as well as the services of an urban planner who likes to work with communities and an environmental expert. Action Champlain works very closely with these professionals to prepare the file. According to similar cases, it is estimated that the professional and administrative expenses for the appeal process could cost up to $ 250,000. Action Champlain needs financial contributions from all Champlain and surrounding residences to defray professional fees to appeal the decision of the United Counties of Prescott and Russell (UCPR) to the Ontario Municipal Board. If you have a property, we suggest making a contribution equivalent to 0.25% of the value of your property.

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. 

Send an email to the Ministry of Environment

Action Champlain’s motion to appeal was denied on June 30th 2021 by the Superior Court of Justice - Ontario Divisional Court and we are very disappointed.

Our appeal to the Local Planning Appeals Tribunal (TAAL) successfully uncovered many errors and omissions that Colacem made in their application for Environmental Compliance Approval from the Ministry of the Environment. We hope that the new Minister of the Environment, the Honourable David Piccini, appointed June 18, 2021 will revoke their Environmental Compliance Approval.

Now, we all need to put political pressure on every level: Municipal, Regional (United Counties), Provincial and Federal. We all pay taxes to these levels, we deserve good services, a healthy environment, and as promised, a healthy Canada with net 0% greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

Our MPs Francis Drouin and Amanda Simard have asked for your help in putting pressure on the Ministry of the Environment to respond to the letter they sent it.

Ask him to respond to the letter that was sent by Amanda Simard and Francis Drouin to Minister Yurek dated May 31, 2021. Note it was also published in the Review Newspaper

We ask each of you to add a few individual comments to personalize your email.

We thank the community which supported us in our efforts, and now must pass the torch to elected officials who know all too well - that climate change is one of the most important environmental issues of our time. To reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 40 to 45% by 2030 we must stop this cement plant today.
