Simple and effect actions you can take to ensure our environment is protected, so that it can provide for our children and their children in Simcoe County and beyond.
A climate emergency declaration is an important step toward addressing the most pressing issue of our time.
An emergency declaration helps frame the urgency of the issue in the public’s eye, and can help build the case for needed action.
In 2015 the Advisory Panel for the Coordinated Review of the Growth Plan, Greenbelt Plan, Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan, and Niagara Escarpment Plan, chaired by David Crombie, reported to the government their recommendations for how Ontario should grow in the coming several decades.
The recommendations of this report show that expanding the Greenbelt is one of the best ways to ensure our children and their children can continue to rely on an environment that supports their health and wellbeing.
Governments have failed to act to protect our communities and the futures of our children and grandchildren, and they continue to treat our environment as if it’s incidental to life, rather than a foundation for it.
We need strong community organizations to fight for our future, now more than ever.
