Letter to Premier Wynne: Don’t help radicals destroy our towns

February 28, 2014
Category: Forestry
Region: Canada East, Canada

Dear Premier Wynne:  Our collective objective in writing this letter is to express in the strongest possible terms our opposition to the proposed Bill 83, also known as “anti-SLAPP legislation.”  …As mayors of boreal towns in Ontario, we can tell you that our communities, and by extension our families, have faced considerable hardship over the last decade. In particular, we have seen increasing opposition to forestry activities and a related reduction of available fibre under the guise of environmental protection, with little consideration of the economic and social needs of our communities.
