Heeding our collective call for a Bluebelt, the Government of Ontario has initiated a public consultation on the areas for potential Greenbelt expansion. We are calling for a larger study area to safeguard the region’s moraines, headwaters, river valleys and wetlands.

Such protection is vital to community health and resilience in the face of climate change. With flooding, drought and extreme weather events increasing in frequency and intensity, we simply cannot afford to pave over those landscape features which store, filter and supply our water.
