On February 27, 2015, the provincial government announced the start of the much anticipated review of plans that protect the Oak Ridges Moraine, Niagara Escarpment and Greenbelt.
To protect these embattled landscapes forever, we must unequivocally tell the government that we want: stronger laws, a stronger landscape and a stronger legacy! This review is an opportunity to make sure that these plans remain true to their intent – the ongoing protection, enhancement and restoration of southern Ontario’s natural and agricultural heritage. It’s not good enough to protect islands of nature; we need to connect these embattled landscapes.
The government has also announced the creation of an expert panel chaired by David Crombie to help lead the review. We need you, your friends, your family and your neighbors to help attend these sessions to show support for the protection of our water, our land and our communities. Please forward this web page address to anyone who cares about the future of these landscapes and encourage them to join our email list.
We will publish policy recommendations and be in touch soon with more opportunities for you to make your voice heard in the coming weeks.
For more information about the announcement of the review, see our press release.
