Hands off Ontario Wildlife
Despite outrage from the public and conservation community, the Ford government plans to decimate the Endangered Species Act. Bill 108 would gut the laws that protect Ontario’s 243 species-at-risk by:
- Giving the Minister new powers to ignore science and suspend habitat protection;
- Creating a pay-to-slay fund, allowing companies to pay a fee to harm wildlife; and
- Removing protection for at-risk species in Ontario if they live outside the province.
The public was already consulted on this. And 98% of people wanted wildlife protections to be kept or strengthened.
So why is the Ford government siding with the 2% who want to destroy endangered species habitat?
Send a letter to the Environment Minister, asking him to protect endangered species rather than push them to the brink.
