Making it easier for big polluters to contaminate Ontario’s clean water? No thanks. But if Doug Ford's “Big Polluter” Bill 132 becomes law, that’s exactly what will happen.

If passed, Bill 132 will drastically lower penalties for industrial corporations that are caught dumping toxic sludge into our lakes or spilling chemical waste into our rivers. It will take away the only incentive for industry to avoid massive spills and to clean them up ASAP when they occur.[1]

It’s a recipe for environmental devastation -- but if enough of us come together, I know we can stop it.

Ford's government has caved to massive public backlash over other environmental rollbacks so they know that Ontario voters take clean environment seriously. [2] That's why the've decided to include a short public input period to get a sense of whether or not these new changes will be similarly politically toxic. 

The government committee reviewing the bill is anxiously waiting to see the public’s reaction to this bill -- and if we drown their inboxes with messages of opposition right now, they'll know exactly where we stand. It could force them to backtrack this attack on our water protections. 

Will you send a message to the public input inbox calling on the government to scrap the section of Bill 132 that lets big polluters off the hook for contaminating our water with their toxic waste?
