On November 7th, the Toronto Harbour Monitoring Report 3.0 was released detailing our findings from the water sampling season. This is the one month update after it’s release, which outlines the next steps for the program. The dream of having a swimmable, fishable, and drinkable harbour is on the horizon, and the five recommendations to the City of Toronto will help define this plan if implemented. To help you community please read, share, write a letter, and help volunteer to take water samples.
In November 2018, the Government of Ontario introduced Bill 57, Restoring Trust, Transparency and Accountability Act, 2018. It is an omnibus bill that also amends other existing provincial laws, including the Environmental Bill of Rights. Swim Drink Fish’s submission contains recommendations intended to protect the integrity and the purpose of the Environmental Commissioner’s office.
