WE MUST SUPPORT CCFEW'S REQUEST FOR AN ENVIRONMENTAL ASESSMENT OF THE SKATING TRAIL!

As many of you will know CCFEW has asked the Minister of the Environment to designate the proposed ice skating trail in Col. Sam Smith Park as a project to which the Environmental Assessment Act should apply. Our submission is posted on the CCFEW website and clearly points out the reasons why the City should not proceed. The Minister is still considering our request and we would like supporters of our position to write to him and tell him why you oppose the skating trail.

It is important that letters and emails go to Minister Gerretson as quickly as possible.

Please quote the following file # ENV 1283MC -2008-3481 and a copy should go to jeffrey.dea@ontario.ca

Letters should be addressed to: Hon. John Gerretson, Minister of the Environment12th Floor, 135 St. Clair Ave. WestToronto M4P1V5

To email the minister you have to go to www.ene.gov.on.ca/feedback/email_minister.php

But please email a copy of your letter to <jeffrey.dee@ontario.ca>

(It helps us track support if you send CCFEW a copy as well.)Plenty of verbal and written support has come to us, but to make it count, it has to go the the Minister of the Environment!
