The health and quality of Lake Simcoe is very much a priority and I do support having provincial funding to reduce the phosphorus levels in Lake Simcoe,.
Having served on the Board for the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority for over 20 years I am very aware of the importance of keeping this Lake healthy and the need to have all levels of government at the table.
In November, East Gwillimbury Council passed a resolution to support moving forward with the Holland Marsh Polder Phosphorus Recycling Facility, notwithstanding the “paused” status of the broader Upper York Sewage Solutions Project.
Having all municipalities engaged in the protection of Lake Simcoe will provide a louder voice at the provincial level.
