1. Do you support Lake Simcoe Watch’s recommendation that the Government of Ontario should develop a plan to reduce Lake Simcoe’s phosphorus pollution to 44 tonnes per year by 2026? If no, do you support the achievement of the 44 tonne per year target by a later date? If yes, please specify the date.
\Yes, I support any attempt to reduce it......
ow that it is known to me, and others ?
2. Do you support Lake Simcoe Watch’s proposed actions to reduce Lake Simcoe’s phosphorus pollution? If no, please explain why not and outline alternative actions that you believe should be taken to reduce Lake Simcoe’s phosphorus pollution?
I'm still not clearly informed as to what the proposed actions are proposed, but have ideas of my own, as follows:
Is it possible to "shock The System" to bring back to where we should have been at this stage and Time ?
If so.....Let's do it , and move forward on a more gradual basis to meet 2026 goals and objectives ?
Now that we are free of the Liberal Gov tin Ontario......LET'S MOVE FORWARD !!
3. Do you agree that the Development Charges Act should be amended to permit the Government of Ontario and Lake Simcoe municipalities to levy development charges to recover 100% of their costs of reducing Lake Simcoe’s phosphorus pollution? If no, please explain why not and outline how you believe the pollution reduction measures should be paid for.
YES, I agree with this suggestion and Proposal.
To recover some of charges, Increase in Boater Licences traveling this area, Slight increase to Property Taxes in the area, Increase in taxes to Municipalities , townships , and Towns that would benefit from a cleaned up surroundings . Increased charges at Boat Launch Facilities.
4. Please provide any other comments about Lake Simcoe Watch’s report: Cleaning Up Lake Simcoe: A Discussion Paper.
Please let's not screw around.....let's just get the NECESSARY JOB DONE before i's too late to recover from .
