After Repeated Requests, ARA Review Hearings will be Held in Waterloo Region
Queen’s Park –Rob Leone, MPP for Cambridge, is pleased to learn that the Aggregate Resources Act (ARA) review will hold public hearings in Waterloo Region on July, 9th, 2012.
“This is long overdue” said Leone. “The PC Caucus has been calling for this Committee to travel since the beginning and obviously, with so much aggregate extraction happening in the area, Waterloo Region makes a great location for the hearings.”
“As MPPs reviewing this act, members of the committee have an obligation to hear from municipalities, industry representatives and residents most familiar with aggregates” said Leone. “Residents of my riding of Cambridge and the greater region experience extraction first hand so it was important for us that these hearings be accessible to them.”
After repeated calls from Leone and other PC members, the Standing Committee on General Government which is undertaking the ARA review, passed a motion approving the Committee’s travel schedule. The committee determined that the hearings would take place in Waterloo region, Dufferin-Caledon, Manitoulin Island, and Ottawa.
For information on the time and location of the hearings as they become available, or to find out how to make a deputation before the Standing Committee on General Government on the ARA review, please contact:Tags: Leone, Rob Leone, Waterloo Region
