On November 5th 2020, the Ontario government tabled Bill 229 Protect, Support, and Recover from COVID-19 Act (Budget Measures), which includes Schedule 6 that proposes major changes to the Conservation Authorities Act that we all, including you, need to be concerned about. We are hoping to have your support by voicing your opinion and expressing your concerns to the Province and to your local constituents. It is important that Conservation Authorities (CAs) be given more opportunity to have a dialogue with the Province to improve the delivery of our programs and services; but the most meaningful way to do this is through constructive conversation and public consultation, not by rushing changes through an omnibus bill using COVID as the rationale. We need all of our friends to act today by emailing, calling, and sharing your support of Ontario’s CAs and the GRCA’s vision of ‘Clean Water, Healthy Land for Healthy Communities’.
