A mid-20th Century Neanderthal’s Vision of Ontario’s future, with less than a wit of concern for climate crises or the value of a healthy ecosystem.

Anishnaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Chippewas and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation – Following the recent passage of Bill 23, Environmental Defence is gathering concerned Ontarians to rally at Bay and College Streets in downtown Toronto on  Saturday December 3, 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm.

The rally will demand that Bill 23 be repealed and that the Ontario government cancel its plan to hand out 7,400 acres of Greenbelt land to sprawl developers.

Participants are encouraged to wear green to symbolize the importance of protecting Ontario’s wetlands, forests and farmland for the future.
