I am unequivocally in favour of requesting the funding and implementation of plans to deal with the major challenges that are threatening Lake Simcoe, including climate change, phosphorus pollution and invasive species. In the 2022-23 federal budget, government allocated 19.6 million for the Freshwater Action fund to support clean up efforts and we must ensure that Simcoe County residents and their governments are informed, invested and watching to that make sure Lake Simcoe gets it’s fair share of funding.
