Residents are asked to
take immediate action:
● Attend the Public Meeting on February 6th, 2007

Notice of Public Meeting:
Since WM did not
organize public information sessions for either Stittsville or
Kanata, the west-end councilors (Eli El Chantiry, Shad Qadri, Peggy
Feltmate and Marianne Wilkinson) have scheduled a public meeting for
Tuesday, February 6, 2007 6-9
p.m. in the auditorium of Sacred Heart High School, located at 5870
Abbott Street in Stittsville.
The evening will consist of a presentation by the West-end
Councillors regarding the City’s position on the proposed expansion.
The Coalition will also make a presentation to help bring everyone
up to speed on volunteer efforts and informing the community how to
get involved. These presentations will be followed by a Question and
Answer period and in the last portion of the evening, city staff
will be on hand to assist residents in creating and submitting their
comments on the Terms of Reference.
Officials from Waste Management were invited to attend the meeting
to present their proposal but declined.
Forward this information onto anyone who you
think might be interested in knowing more about the
fight to stop the expansion.

Comments on the Terms of Reference (ToR):
WM has submitted its revised Terms of
Reference (ToR) to the Ontario Ministry of the Environment for its
proposed expansion of the Carp Rd. landfill. The Environmental
Assessment process to evaluate WM’s
proposal has started.
As of January 12, the community has
30 days to respond to the revised ToR.
The Coalition of Citizen Groups
opposed to the expansion is preparing a qualitative response to the
revised ToR, building on the work that was done in response to the
Draft ToR that was prepared May 2006.
To ensure that a large quantity of
comments are sent from individuals within the community it is
vitally important that you personally submit your comments too.
Your comments should
be sent to:
