Talking to Our Community

December 2021 Update

CBM hosted a virtual project update information session on December 1, 2021 with members of the public to provide an update on the proposed project. CBM hosted the meeting via GoToWebinar.

An invitation to this meeting was delivered via Canada Post Neighborhood Mail to over 2,000 addresses, and sent via email to members of the public whose email addresses are in the project's contact list. The invitation was also published on the project website, and emailed to other potentially interested parties.

CBM would like to thank the neighbours and members of the Caledon community that attended the virtual information session for your participation and for your questions and comments. The intent of the meeting was to provide an update on the proposed project, to provide an update on the technical studies that have been completed to date (including preliminary results and next steps), to provide an update on the actions that CBM has taken to address the input received from the public during the spring 2021 virtual sessions, and to answer your questions about the proposed project. We hope that we answered any questions that you may have at this stage and we look forward to continued dialogue with you as the technical studies progress. All questions raised during the session will be addressed in detail on the FAQ page on this website in the coming weeks as mentioned below.

A copy of the presentation provided at the meeting can be found at the link here.

The recording of the presentation can be watched below.

Meeting attendees will recall that we played a video during the session of a blasting event at CBM's Osprey Quarry (near Collingwood) to provide an example of what a quarry blast looks like. The video is shown in the presentation recording above (without sound due to the limitations with GoToWebinar). You can also watch the video, with sound, below.

CBM has created a frequently asked questions (FAQs) subpage on this website that provides answers to FAQs raised during the virtual public meetings held in spring 2021 and other consultation completed for the proposed project. The FAQs will be updated in the coming weeks to address the questions received during the December 2021 session. We invite you to sort through the FAQs available in the subpage in the meantime.

As noted during the virtual public meetings, consultation will continue with members of the public, as well as Indigenous communities, government officials and agencies, and community interest groups. As part of ongoing consultation for the project, CBM will host another series of meetings on individual topics and technical studies early in spring 2022 (e.g., virtual meetings on topics of concern such as traffic, water, noise, blasting, etc.). Information about these future meetings will be available on the project website and invitations will be distributed using similar methods from previous meetings (e.g., mail, email).

We welcome comments or questions you may have at any time during the project, and are committed to participating in constructive dialogue. You also do not have to wait until future public meetings to reach out.
