Is this quarry really “needed” for aggregate?

​Not according to a study by retired geologist Dr. Larry Jensen who served on the 2010 Technical Expert Panel for the State of the Aggregate Resource in Ontario Study. He conducted a review of aggregate reserves in Ontario and concluded that there was a 200 year supply in existing pits.nFor many reasons including the pollution and habitat destruction associated with aggregate mining there is a widespread movement underway to have the Aggregate Act of Ontario include a provision requiring that applicants “demonstrate need” for the aggregate. It is very unlikely that this application would meet such a requirement.
