The BCO is hosting an urgent and important meeting this Wednesday, January 16th 7pm – 9pm to help us understand the impacts of proposed Bill 66.
Bill 66 opens up Ontario’s Greenbelt for factory, retail and residential development, undermines drinking water protection rules and guts rules that help industry reduce the release of toxic chemicals. At a time when Ontarians need forward-thinking government action, Bill 66 basically takes us back 40 years.
The existing legislation was put in place by all parties, Conservative, Liberal and NDP, over the last 30 plus years. Premier Ford’s campaign promised to leave the Greenbelt intact and the subsequent reversal of position shows a blatant disrespect of Ontarians. Bill 66 puts the health of everyone at risk. The health of our region depends on valuing our farms, forests, clean water sources and nature.
