Nov 22, 2010 Community Information Meeting

Lakeridge Citizens for Clean Water held a community information meeting Monday evening attended by over 100 people. Invited speakers included the mayor of Port Perry, Marilyn Pearce; District Manager Dave Fumerton of Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment; MPP John O’Toole; Rob Messervey of the Kawartha Conservation Authority; and Debbie Gordon of STORM (Save The Oak Ridges Moraine) Coalition. Aside from the many local residents who came out on a very foggy evening, also taking part were officials and incoming mayors and councillors for Port Perry and Uxbridge; a representative from MP Bev Oda’s office; and representatives from environmental organizations Earthroots, the Oak Ridges Moraine Land Trust, and Scugog Lake Stewards. Transport Canada did not attend to clarify the aerodrome issue.

The meeting began with an overview PowerPoint presentation.  Mayor Pearce described the township’s current actions and their frustrations with the existing legislation. Mr. Fumerton spoke in some detail of MOE’s activities and the processes that they were going through. Mr. Messervey said that although the site was outside of their area of jurisdiction, the conservation authority was concerned and would be checking the groundwater monitoring wells that the CA’s have around the site. John O’Toole spoke of his efforts at the higher levels of the provincial government and Debbie Gordon put this local issue into the context of the moraine. Questions were asked from the floor and answered by the panel. Following the meeting a press release was sent to local media.
