NEC argues quarry doesn't meet terms of escarpment plan

TORONTO — A one-day hearing held Thursday could determine the fate of the proposed quarry expansion west of Duntroon. The Niagara Escarpment Commission voted last August to challenge the decision of the Consolidated Hearings Board decision that allowed Walker Aggregates to expand its quarry operation.

The initial hearing lasted 139 days over a 13-month period and ended last June in a 2-1 decision in favour of the expansion.

Thursday’s judicial review hearing was held in Osgoode Hall courtroom three in front of a three-judge panel: Justices Tom Lederer, Katherine Swinton, Renee Pomerance. The judges have reserved their ruling whether to uphold, amend, or overturn the Consolidated Hearings Board decision.
