Niagara Regional Councillors Will Soon Vote on What Could Be One Last Chance to Safeguard Our Natural Heritage for Future Generations

Here is An Important Message from One of Niagara’s Leading Citizen Groups that Niagara At Large Urges You to Listen To

Liz Benneian

“It’s critical that our regional councillors choose the best option now because with increasing development that Niagara is under, there will be no second chance. What is not saved now will be lost forever.”                               – Liz Benneian, Niagara resident and leading member of the Biodiversity and Climate Action Committee

A Message from Niagara resident and a leading voice in our region for environmental protection, Liz Benneian

Posted September 9th, 2021 on Niagara At Large

Will Niagara Region’s Council preserve Niagara’s natural environment for future generations?

The decision will be made soon (possibly soon as the next Regional Council meeting scheduled for Thursday, September 23rd at 6:30 p.m.).

In this short video, Liz Benneian from Biodiversity and Climate Action Niagara discusses what a Natural Environment System is, what the benefits are, why this important decision is being made now and why Option 3C is the best option.

The video also shows which Mayors and Regional Councillors have so far supported Option 3C and which haven’t and suggests what you can do to let your elected officials know what choice you want them to make.
