Save the Endangered Species Act
As the world receives an urgent global assessment report from the United Nations on the imminent collapse of the natural world, Ontario is abandoning endangered species. Buried within Bill 108, More Homes More Choice Act, an omnibus bill, are 20 pages of amendments to the Endangered Species Act.
The fate of our most threatened wildlife are hanging in the balance: blanding’s turtle, lake sturgeon, boreal caribou, polar bear, wolverine, hog-nosed snake, wood turtle, olive sided flycatcher, redside dace and many many more. The Ontario government is moving to gut the law with Bill 108. The amendments would rollback protections to expedite housing, forestry, and other commercial and industrial developments. Time is of the essence. It looks like the bill will pass next week (June 4th) so we need to make as much noise as possible now.
