CONSERVATION AUTHORITIES KEEP OUR ENVIRONMENT SAFE. NOW THE ONTARIO GOVERNMENT IS GUTTING THEM.
This is an action by Environmental Defence.
"The Ontario government has just launched an all-out attack on Ontario’s protected forests and wetlands.
Hidden in their latest budget Bill is a clause which will take away any control over the protection of our precious wetlands, forests, wildlife habitat and natural spaces from Conservation Authorities, and give huge new powers to developers to push through destructive projects.
Worse, by sneaking through these changes buried in a budget bill, the government is avoiding the public consultation that is normally required on laws that impact the environment.
That’s why we need every MPP to hear about this, so that they push to remove schedule 6, which guts Conservation Authorities, from the budget Bill."
More details and to send letter.
