WHEN joins the call for an expanded Greenbelt

Thank you to our colleagues at the Canadian Environmental Law Association, the Ontario Environment Network and Ontario Headwaters Institute for adding our voice to yours on the "Protecting Water for Future Generations: Growing the Greenbelt in the Outer Ring" submission to the EBR. We look forward to meaningful expansion of our 'waterscape' and welcome improved protections for community health throughout the Greenbelt region.
