In a phrase, these proposals show that this government in general, and the MNRF specifically, has things backwards. This is 2019, not 1919; the protection of the environment, not the exploitation of its resources, should be, MUST be, the engine driving provincial policy. Start from there, and one soon realizes the proposals are simply wrong-headed at every turn. Protection of our farmlands, our groundwaters, our forests and greenlands is the most economically beneficial, socially responsible thing this government can do. Ontarians today demand this for the Ontarians of tomorrow.
