Ontarians didn’t stand by while the government steamrolled over environmental protection measures!

While the world was fighting a global pandemic, the provincial government of Ontario continued full steam ahead in its push to deregulate provisions put in place to protect wildlife and nature. In 2020, it granted a permanent exemption to the forestry industry from the prohibitions against habitat destruction under the Endangered Species Act. The David Suzuki Foundation continues to work to protect boreal woodland caribou and other forest-dwelling creatures.
