    They did it. No consultation. No discussion at standing committee. The Auditor General has noted the illegality of passing this bill without posting it to the Environmental Registry, but the bill exempts itself from that so its passage makes it quasi-legal. They did this before when cancelling the Green Energy Act. A court ruling in an action brought by Greenpeace stated that the government should adhere to the Environmental Bill of Rights, and establish protocols for if when and how they might do this again, while suggesting they should not. Remember when this government ran on accountability "for the people"?

    The Ford government continues to oppose the federal carbon plan; the pretence that the Made-in-Ontario Environment Plan is not just a draft; and to reduce environmental protection while empowering aggregate extraction, road construction, and the wrong type of housing. And now, it is pressing forward on another omnibus bill, Bill 197. This one amends 20 acts and excludes itself from public consultation, harming democracy as much as our environment. See the Land Use Planning Committee page for more. In the meantime, we must take a page from John Lewis and not get lost in a sea of despair. Courage matters.
