The future of Ontario’s most endangered species is under threat. [1]
Ontario’s Minister of Environment Rod Phillips is proposing sweeping changes to the Endangered Species Act that would sideline scientists and water down rules for developers.

People are calling it the 'Pay to Slay' law, because developers could pay a small fee to proceed with work in fragile habitats. [2]
With the world in the midst of an environmental crisis, we need our leaders to restore and protect the habitats of at-risk species, not sell off their protections.

Public consultation on the changes closes this Saturday at midnight. If thousands of us sign a petition demanding Minister Phillips scrap these devastating changes to the Endangered Species Act, the public opposition will be deafening — and could force him to backtrack.
Sign the petition now, and we’ll submit it directly to the public portal to make sure the Minister sees it.


To Ontario's Minister of Environment, Rod Phillips

Protect Ontario’s Endangered Species and remove the devastating changes to Ontario’s Endangered Species Act.
