As with ERO 019-4446, the government should think very hard about the true costs of the mining business.
I am not particularly for or against this proposal, but the public deserves evidence-based decision-making, here. There should be clear benefits to the public, not to individuals and small businesses, for the decisions being taken.
The government should start stepping away from subsidizing the the negative cost of externalities, instead of taking on more and more costs on behalf of the people of Ontario.... Costs that the government has no capacity or intention of "paying off".
