Changes to Ontario’s planning laws and to the Growth Plan, make it easier for sprawl developers to pave over farmland, forests and wetlands.
What we do on the land impacts water. More sprawl and highways and weaker planning rules mean more runoff, pollution and flooding.
At a time when we should be working to help and restore endangered species and protect wild nature, the Ontario government has gutted the law that protects endangered species.
Climate change is an urgent crisis. But instead of doing more to fight climate change, Ontario cancelled most of the programs that helped industry and individuals reduce carbon pollution.
The Ontario government repealed the Toxics Reduction Act (TRA) and reversed progress on air pollution. This is a serious threat to our health, and a daily reality for many communities living at the fenceline of industrial areas, such as Sarnia
