Petition - Stop Bill 66

Stop Bill 66: Protect Our Drinking Water & Our Environment
TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:
WHEREAS Doug Ford has introduced Bill 66 (“Restoring Ontario’s Competitiveness” Act), which rolls back hard-won protections
for children, consumers, workers, and the environment;
WHEREAS Bill 66 creates a municipal planning loophole that allows developers to override legislation designed to protect our
environment, farmlands, and drinking water;
WHEREAS Doug Ford is dragging Ontario backward by weakening water regulations that were put in place after the E. coli
outbreak in Walkerton;
WHEREAS Bill 66 allows the Greenbelt to be bulldozed, undermining efforts to make communities in Ontario more sustainable,
livable, and resilient;
WHEREAS Bill 66 threatens the continued viability of agricultural communities within the Greenbelt;
WE THE UNDERSIGNED petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to direct the Doug Ford government to protect the safety
of drinking water for all Ontarians, to protect the Greenbelt, and to prioritize the sustainability and conservation of Ontario’s
waters by revoking Bill 66.
