Dear Minister Clark,

Please accept this letter as my resignation from the Greenbelt Council, effective immediately. 

I have thoroughly enjoyed the opprotunity to work with such a knowledgable and dedicated group of people, but the Government's recent actions relating to Schedule 6 of Bill 229 have left me no choice but to reisgn. I cannot in good conscience continue in this role, when contrary to the advice of the Greenbelt Council, the Government fails to recognize the long-term importance of integrated watershed planning and the key roles played by Conservation Authorities in environmental stewardship. I also find it disturbing that the traditional public consultation and natural justice rights enjoyed by the people of Ontario in planning for growth are being circumvented through a dramatic increase in the use of Ministerial Zoning Orders.

That the Government is taking these actions in the middle of a pandemic is particularly troubling. 

Respectfully,

Kevin Eby

Member, Greenbelt Council.
