Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority: Make DG Group's wetland destruction application public
The DG Group (formerly Metrus) has filed an application with the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA) to turn a 500 acre provincially significant wetland into a mobile home park.
To add insult to injury, the LSRCA has refused to make the application public and has stated that it is not interested in hearing from the public on this matter.
According to the “Conservation of Land” test, the LSRCA can only approve DG’s application if it will not have an adverse impact on the Paradise Beach-Island Grove provincially significant wetland in the North Gwillimbury Forest.
The public has the right to know the basis for DG’s claim that a 1,073 unit mobile home park won’t harm a provincially significant wetland. And the public has the right to tell the LSRCA why it believes that DG’s claim is not supported by good science.
Sign the petition and demand that the LSRCA make its decision making on this important issue transparent.
