After years of efforts the province has finally announced a proposal to begin the process to expand the Provincial Greenbelt to the Waterloo Moraine, the Paris-Galt Moraine, and other essential hydrological resources facing development pressures around the Greater Toronto Area including Waterloo Region, Wellington County, Dufferin County, Simcoe County, Dufferin County, etc. This could provide an important second-layer of environmental protection to our Regional environmental protections such as the Laurel Creek Headwaters Environmentally Sensitive Landscape (ESL), Protected Countryside, and Countryside Line concept.
There is a March 7th deadline for public comment and it is so important that the government hears from the citizens of Ontario that they want more action on the environment, climate change, local food, urban sprawl, farmland protection, greenspace preservation, source water protection and all the other advantages that this permanent Greenbelt protection brings.
Please be sure to send your comments and support for Greenbelt expansion to help better protect Sunfish Lake to the province as soon as possible at:
