Hi Everybody.

I know we are all immersed in our summer adventures. However, while we enjoy our paddling, there is mischief afoot at Queen's Park.

As you know, the Ontario Government included changes to environmental legislation in the recent budget bill (Bill 55). By doing so, they have circumvented the process guaranteed to all of you in Ontario's Environmental Bill of Rights.

Right now, the budget is before the Standing Committee of Finance and Economic Affairs. If you email your comments to valerie_quioc@ontla.ola.org by noon tomorrow (Tuesday June 12), you may help avert a disaster.

If the legislation goes through as planned, you will have
-new private land leases in provincial parks!
-reduced protection for Ontario's endangered species!
-reduced management planning for Ontario provincial parks!

The amendments to our environmental legislation reduce environmental protection and favour development and industrial interests.

Now is the time to speak up. Please send your emails.

Thanks
