Submitted to Just Sayin' Caledon

With the Municipal Election less than three weeks away Just Sayin’ Caledon posed eight questions to all Caledon Council candidates. Our Just Askin’ series of questions related to gridlock, small business, community services, quarries, walkable communities, the whitebelt, rural services, and the loss of two seats at the Peel Region Council table. Answers from the candidates who chose to participate are being published over the course of this week on JSC.

Question 8 of 8:

Caledon is home to numerous quarries, with more planned. The Provincial Policy Statement section 2.5.2.1 reads “as much of the mineral aggregate resources as is realistically possible shall be made available as close to market as possible.” Most resident concerns revolve around noise, dust, pollution, increased truck traffic, and safety of water quality and supply. Do you feel Caledon can control these circumstances and, if so, how?
