Simcoe County Greenbelt Coalition

Thanks to many Schedule 10 of Bill 66 is dead. That means that developers won’t be able to sidetrack key policies in the Greenbelt Act, Source Water Protection Plans, Lake Simcoe Act and the Oak Ridges Moraine. We all know the power of collective action. We were happy to support this initiative to protect our water and local green spaces. People power!
