Resources and Contacts for 2015 Environmental Reviews

Apr 22, 2014

 

We’ve received many inquiries from our April 9th forum attendees, asking whom to contact within our Provincial and Municipal governments as well as relevant action groups to make their opinions heard on these critical upcoming Reviews.

This list certainly isn’t exhaustive, and admittedly it’s skewed to York Region (and King Township) where CCKT is based.  Your local municipality will have a similar organization structure.  Your Regional municipal government functions may vary however.

This list is a good start, and please, DO COMMENT at the end of this post to add resources and general comments of your own — all readers will see and benefit from it.

1)  Contact your local advocacy group and get involved (assist, inquire, join and donate):

Many of these groups are coalitions representing many smaller regional and local organizations. They are advocating for the Reviews right now.
