Doug Ford’s Ontario Government has unleashed a barrage of changes to legislation and policy under Bills 23 and 39 that would open the Greenbelt to development, cripple connectivity around Rouge National Urban Park and remove protections for wetlands and other environmentally sensitive areas in Southern Ontario.
We can’t let this happen. Demand the Doug Ford repeal Bill 23, Bill 39 and associated proposals.
Nestled in the heart of the single largest unbroken boreal forest in the world is the Fawn River Indigenous Protected Area (IPA). Leaders from Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (KI) Nation have spent years safeguarding this watershed following the sacred instructions from Elders that have been passed on from generation to generation. While these lands are protected under KI’s laws, it is vital Ontario also protect them using its own laws. Urge Premier Ford to protect the Fawn River IPA.
The federal government promised Canadians they would halt and reverse nature loss by 2030 in Canada. The responsibility is Minister Guilbeault’s to get it done. Tell Canada it’s time to intervene. It’s time for Canada to apply an order using its powers under the Species at Risk Act to protect threatened caribou habitat.
Moose Cree First Nation has repeatedly petitioned the Ontario government to outlaw logging, mining and other industrial development in the watershed—to no avail.
Send a message to Premier Doug Ford, Minister Rickford, Minister Piccini, and your MPP. Let them know you support Moose Cree’s efforts to build an Indigenous Protected Area and you want Ontario to act.
Logging doesn’t belong in Algonquin Park.
Protecting nature is our best ally in the fight against climate change. Yet plans to log in Ontario’s most famous Park continue even while protection for species and forests are rolled back.
Omushkego (Cree) leaders in northern Ontario, supported by groups like Wildlands League & Oceans North are working to safeguard the Omushkego way of life and arctic/subarctic marine oasis in Canada’s ocean.
We need you to help keep the momentum going!
Let Indigenous leaders and the Government of Canada know that you support these actions in protecting 25% of Canada’s ocean by 2025.
