Protect Ontario’s Precious Wetlands

Doug Ford’s plan to pave over 7,400 acres of the Greenbelt is more than just breaking a promise he’s made before. He’s also destroying some of Ontario’s most important wetlands, which are already in short supply.

Wetlands play an important role in flood protection by absorbing stormwater runoff. They help to improve water quality, prevent soil erosion, and provide habitat for endangered species.

However, our wetlands are rapidly disappearing. An estimated 85% of wetlands in southern Ontario and the Greater Toronto Area have already been lost.

To make matters worse, despite receiving nearly 15,000 submissions opposing the changes, the government is moving forward with a plan to gut the province’s wetland evaluation system.
