Aggregate Extraction in Ontario: A Strategy for the Future
by Matt Binstock and Maureen Carter-Whitney
Canadian Institute for Environmental Law and Policy
Aggregate extraction continues to be one of the most controversial land use issues in Ontario.
Demand for aggregate resources in fast growing municipalities in the province, combined with a
policy and legislative framework promoting extraction of aggregates close to the markets where
they will be consumed, has resulted in substantial resistance to new aggregate extraction
operations when they are proposed.
A very informative report.
