Colacem is inviting L’Orignal residents to visit its quarry as well as the proposed site for the cement plant project on June 16. The visit will be preceded by a discussion on the project and a brief presentation on the forthcoming consultation process.

A notice prepared by Colacem says it is convinced that the project presents “great opportunities and tangible benefits, such as significant local and regional economic impacts. However, the company remains sensitive to the concerns that have been raised throughout the project authorization process.”

The notice states that citizen participation will help to clarify the topics on which Colacem will hold public thematic workshops in the fall.

There are three time slots available on Saturday, June 16: Visit 1 is from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.; visit 2 is from noon to 2 p.m. and visit 3 is from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. You are asked to confirm your attendance as soon as possible with Andréanne Gravel, by phone at 1-450-686-1221 or by email to: [email protected]

The meeting point will be at Saint-Jean-Baptiste Catholic Elementary School, located at 35 Longueuil Street in L’Orignal.

The organizers note that this meeting is not part of the formal approval process, nor is this a day of technical information. The objective is to offer participants the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the Colacem Canada site and to promote dialogue and discussions around the cement plant project.
