DEVELOPERS WANT TO PAVE OVER THE DUFFINS CREEK WETLANDS - TO BUILD WAREHOUSES

Developers are trying to pave over an area of sensitive and important wetland between Pickering and Ajax in order to build a massive new warehouse complex. We urgently need your help to stop it.

Lower Duffins Creek Wetland complex is one of the GTA’s largest remaining wetlands on the north shore of Lake Ontario. Developing this land violates provincial policy, is destructive to the environment and will increase local flood risks, all for the sake of making more money for developers. The Town of Ajax is opposed to this development but they need your help.

The Province has already granted developers a Minister’s Zoning Order - MZO - which will let them ignore the rules around protecting wetlands and bypass any public consultation - meaning that you will no longer get a say about this damaging development.

The Board of Directors of Toronto and Region Conservation Authority must now decide if they agree to this deeply destructive project.

Lower Duffins Creek wetlands need to be protected.

Take action today to tell local MPPs Bethlenfalvy and Phillips and the Board of Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) to say no to the developers' wishes and reject the MZO.
