HELP SAVE THE ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSIONER OF ONTARIO (ECO)

FOCA logoNews Week has just learned that on November 15, 2018, the Ontario Government introduced sudden plans to eliminate the office of the Environmental Commissioner of Ontario (ECO). A vote on this was rushed through on December 6. The ECO is our environmental watchdog, supporting public participation through the Environmental Registry, as well as government accountability for decisions that affect our environment, now and into the future.
