Biographical history

Louisette Lanteigne is an environmental and social justice advocate from Waterloo Ontario who has worked on such issues as land development in Waterloo Region; protection of water quality; opposition to establishment or expansion of quarries; protection of endangered species; and opposition to pipelines in Southern Ontario. In her work, Lanteigne is informed and inspired by her heritage as Acadian Mi'kmaw Metis woman; by her Catholic faith; and by her experience as a parent of three children.

Lanteigne began her career as a citizen environmental advocate in 2002 when she created a website to document environmental, labour, and safety violations by the developers and contractors building homes in the Columbia Forest neighbourhood of Waterloo, Ontario. Her advocacy led to action by the Provincial Ministry of the Environment and caused her to be sued by developer, Activa Holdings. Her experience with this suit led her to participate in the drafting of provincial anti-SLAPP (Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation) legislation. Lanteigne has also appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board in attempt to limit housing development on the west side of Waterloo.

Since then, Lanteigne has become a participant in the campaigns to oppose Ontario Municipal Board approvals of the Rockport Quarry in Caledon; the quarry in Melancthon; and the Mount Nemo quarry expansion ; and the West Montrose Capital Paving Quarry Pit; and the Flamborough St. Mary’s Quarry – all in Southern Ontario.
Lanteigne is also interested in protecting endangered species in Waterloo and has participated in the Ontario Turtle Tally and Frogwatch locally. Her opposition to the Region of Waterloo’s extension of River Road to Hidden Valley Road in 201? was based on her findings of an endangered salamander habitat in the proposed path of the road.
Lanteigne is a vocal critic of the Line 9 and 10 and Northern Gateway pipelines and has submitted evidence to National Energy Board hearings regarding the replacement of the Westover segment near Sarnia.

In her advocacy, Lanteigne has become an expert in provincial, regional and municipal legislation and regulations dealing with natural resources. She uses the tools available to citizens including the Ontario Environmental Bill of Rights; public consultations of the Ontario Municipal Board and other public hearings; and freedom of information laws to advocate for the protection of the environment.
