Please print this warning to your local readers like me. Ford's government has begun watering down the Endangered Species Act.
Already easy to ignore, one problem with the Act is, it has never been properly enforced. Successive governments ignored deadlines, made minimal efforts, and watered down the rules.
Industry enjoys massive exemptions from the ESA’s strict measures. This has to stop. The government must get rid of the sweeping changes. City folk may not have even noticed the sharp decline in bees, certain insects and the bats and birds that feed on them, turtles and the larger scarce wildlife.
Please make your readers aware and do something to halt the danger. Ford’s government is reviewing the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Based on his government’s past record, this is a critical moment for endangered species.
Some of Ontario’s most beloved animals are at real risk of disappearing.
