Dear Wolf Defenders,
It won't be news to you that Ford's government has been taking advantage of the pandemic to quietly strip back environmental protection.
Now they plan to change laws to allow loggers to ransack species-at-risk habitat and strip Conservation Authorities of their power to prohibit development of environmentally sensitive land — all under "budget" Bill 229, which they've cleverly called "Protect, Support and Recover from COVID-19 Act".
This is serious, and it has nothing to do with protection.
Hiding environmental rollbacks under a pandemic budget bill allows Ford's cronies to push Bill 229 through at break-neck speed without formal public consultation.
