​​Can we win at the OMB and what are the odds of success in preventing the Hidden Quarry from proceeding?

​​Yes and the odds are pretty good. There are solid legal arguments against it, and a huge ground swell of opposition from area residents and politicians alike. That is because of the many problems it will cause including potential drinking water, air and noise pollution, truck traffic hazards, property devaluation, blasting dangers, and unnecessary environmental degradation.nCRC has hired one of if not the best legal team in Ontario to present its case. It’s led by Mr. Chris Barnett of DLA Piper in Toronto who represented the Town of Caledon in the successful OMB case against the James Dick Construction Ltd. (JDCL) ​​Rockfort Quarry application in Caledon.nIn addition to CRC’s legal fight against it, the Guelph Eramosa Township (GET) Council has hired an independent legal team to fight it. And on top of that Halton Region has its legal team fighting it too.nWe have the best interests of our community at heart while James Dick is motivated by profit.  With so many sound reasons for being against it, it is reasonable to be optimistic that the OMB will also recognize that this quarry is bad for the area and turn it down.
