About The Letter:
Environmental Defence requests the removal of Schedule 3 of Bill 257: Supporting Broadband and Infrastructure Expansion Act. Schedule 3 of Bill 257 aims to empower a single Minister to authorize essentially any form of development, almost anywhere in the more populated parts of the province, in defiance of the most basic principles of good land use planning. The dangers of this ill-considered course are hard to overstate. Schedule 3 would allow development that endangers people, the environment, and the long-term viability of towns, cities and rural areas.
