As part of the Great Lakes Protection Act Alliance, Sierra Club submitted comments on A Wetland Conservation Strategy for Ontario 2016-2030 (EBR Registry Number: 012-7675). Among the recommendations, the GLPA Alliance asserts this draft strategy is not utilizing powers already available to the Ministry and should "commit to setting time bound, measurable targets with aspirational milestones for wetlands in the Great Lakes-St Lawrence River Basin."
In other words, the Wetland Strategy is not making strategic use of tools in place to really conserve wetlands. We hope they take the recommendations seriously and add quantifiable goals!
GLPA Alliance recommendation letter is attached.
