STOP Ontario’s Bill 66: Proposed open-for-business planning tool

ACTIONS TO TAKE and PETITION TO STOP BILL 66

Join us and many nature protection and citizen groups and thousands of Ontarians making efforts to stop Bill 66 from obliterating years of struggle to establish and bring into force essential environmental protection laws in Ontario

“If passed, this legislation would trump critical environmental protections for land, water and wildlife. Schedule 10 of the proposed legislation would allow municipalities to create an “open-for-business planning by-law” to circumvent planning requirements and land use restrictions under numerous provincial laws, plans and policies.”
