The Cootes Paradise Water Accountability Act marks a first step in better protecting our water. We have a right to know what’s in our water. Our community’s passionate response to 4 years of sewage seeping into Cootes Paradise has demonstrated that we are committed to protect our water. This bill would make it easier for citizen led environmental action to respond and organize around spills in our community. By ensuring Ontarians are immediately informed about what’s happening to our waterways, we are empowered to act. We all have a responsibility to our water because #WaterisLife.
I urge the Ontario government to take action and protect our water by passing MPP Shaw's Bill the Cootes Paradise Water Accountability Act.
