Archived: Help save the Greenbelt and toxics regulation in Ontario

This is a past action alert, and no longer active.

Bill 66 is a major threat to environmental protection in Ontario and we need your help to stop it. We are at great risk of losing toxics protections. Here’s the story. The bill has twelve unrelated schedules, and the last chance to tell the government about your concerns in Monday, March 18. Schedule 5 would get rid of the Toxics Reduction Act, which empowers government to regulate toxics and to require toxics labeling on products. Schedule 10 would allow municipalities to override planning, water and environmental protections when considering development proposals. The threat to the Greenbelt stirred up a huge backlash and the government announced that it would remove that schedule. There is no such promise about Schedule 5, and the government has yet to remove Schedule 10. The government needs to know that Ontarians care about protecting our water and environment and that they care about reducing toxics in the environment, workplace and products.
