St Marys Cement and the Mysterious Orange Road Stakes
Last fall area residents noticed orange stakes appearing beside some area roadways.
Because these stakes appeared by roads that are potential haul routes for the proposed St Marys Cement Flamborough Quarry, members of FORCE contacted the Town of Milton and the City of Hamilton to investigate.
Both the Senior Manager of Infrastructure for the Town of Milton and the Senior Project Manager of Public Works for the City of Hamilton informed us that these stakes were not placed by the municipalities, but were part of a transportation study undertaken on behalf of St Marys Cement in support of the proposed Quarry.
They marked sites where unauthorized drilling had been done to obtain core samples of the road and roadbed.
Each official told us that this work could only be done under permit, but that no permits had been issued by either municipality.
In fact, Milton's Senior Manager of Infrastructure told us that St Marys Cement had contacted the Town about performing this study, had been informed that a permit was required, but had never applied for this permit.
No application for such a permit had been received by the City of Hamilton.
The City of Hamilton is taking this very seriously.
They are worried that cutting through the road's surface and then attempting to patch the resulting hole could allow water to get into the roadbed and cause premature failure of the road.
This is particularly concerning for the 11th Concession, which had been newly paved at public expense.
In fact, the City of Hamilton has recent records of the roads' composition and condition, which would have been made available to St Marys Cement, had they asked for them.
This unauthorized activity was done in violation of local laws.
We are very concerned that a company that has gone to great lengths and expense to claim that they want to be good neighbours should behave in this way.
This question arises:
If agents of the proposed Quarry have indeed behaved with disregard of local regulation during the application phase, could they be trusted to respect legal or regulatory conditions placed on their operations if the Quarry were to be approved for development?

We have just come across a memo
being presented at Zorra Township's council meeting this week from the AMO (Association of Municipalities of Ontario) stating their intention to pressure MNR to stall the process for proposed improvements to the Endangered Species Act (ESA) with yet more discussions with municipal governments, etc.
Seems like this proposed piece of legislation is making some lower-tier governments more than a little nervous...
