In 2W3, well in advance of any plan io establish an engineered lanafiil, I had subrnitted a formal proposal to the Municipality for the develcprnent of a vacationhg ana retiremert cornmunity, next to Mount O'Brien, which serves as a strong attraction to the area for interested buyers. This formal proposal was the culmination of many rounds of discussions with Counul rnembers and with the Municipal Inspector. It mnsists of two phases of 120 lots each. mis project is in hamony with the existing Land Plan of the MRC, which consiciers Eco-fourism as the primary land use on its temtwy. My developmen! proposal is capable of generating stibsiantial tax revenues, emp!oymwit opportwities in both local consiruction and sew.ce sectors, cc a sustainable basis.

Application for a Public Hearing concerning a Project to establiçh a Technical Landfïll Site (TLS) at Danford Lake, Municipalité de Alleyn-et-Cawood I should like hereby to request a public hearing into the above project. My interest arises because of the close proximity of my property, on Little Lake Danford, to highway #301; this road would be used excessively should the project proceed. As far as I can determine, from those Who have examined the document filed by the project proposer, LDC, very little attention seems to have been given to the problem of heavy traffic to and from their proposed landsite. Moreover, the whole process of determining whether or not the project goes forward seems to have serious flaws that need to be aired in a public hearing. Not the least of these flaws is the absence of an English translation of the huge document that describes the environmental impact study cornmissioned by LDC. If democratic process is to succeed, the population affected by the project, most of whom are Anglophones, must be able to read and understand the technical details of the proposal. This information is available at the present time ONLY in French. Of considerable interest to me are four salient points. Whether or not these have been taken into consideration in the impact study I cannot determine. These are the problems of heavy traffic on roads that were never intended for such incessant loads; the likalihood of increased vermin and seagulls in the environment of the lakes that totally surround the proposed landsite; the question of eventual leakage of poisonous material into the neighbouring waterways (including some that are claimed by indigenous people); and the issue of safer, more modern, alternative means for eliminating not only the accumulated garbage of the area but also the presence of potentially noxious landfills themselves. Even if the existing French document does discuss these points in detait, 1 feel that it is necessary for the people Who are going to be impacted by the project to have a forum to express to the Government of Quebec, and to your department, Mr. Minister, their misgivings about and general opposition to the proposal as it is now constituted. There is a wideiy held opinion that those most affected have not had such an open forum. A formal public hearing is, I believe, very strongly indicated. Please advise me of details should the public hearing take place; I would like to parîicipate in it. Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

From the onset, there has been a cornpiete iack of transparency around this project. Citizans have been denied tlkir right to decide thcir own future, and thatur future generat'ons. 1 have been driving Highrvay 105 for 28 years. It is dangerous; its iwo lanes wirrdinq dong the Gatineau River throuyh rriany little villages between Gatineau and Kazabarua. Accidents and deaths rach year are numerous. ic cannot lake any more rnamrnoth trücks. The choice of location and the site itsclf is beyond comprehension. Where is the social justice in transporting the garbage of over 250,000 people :O a tiny cornrnunity of about 150, in an area of!akes, rivers, fores& and wetlands,.sp+xiaity the beautiful Picanoc River, used by fishermen, white water canoeists and outdoor enthusiasts. The impact (tao rnany to deal with at this tirne) on the communi?y and the environment will be devastaling. 1 request that public hearings be held in Danford Lake, as weli as al1 those rnunicipalities that will be rnost affected hy this project, such as Karabarua, Low, and Lapêche. Most importantly, 1 see Quebec as forward thinking and a leader, and 1 request that the BAPE's mandate include looking at alternatives to landfills, such as waste-intoenergy technologies.

Hearings should be held in Gatineau, as well as Danford Lake, Kazabazua, Low and Lapeche. In addition ta the potential greenhouse gas emission for centuries to corne as a result of this proposal, the BAPE public hearings should look at alternatives to landfills.
