The Council of Canadians has been calling on MPPs in Ontario to support Bill 32, an Act to prevent the disposal of waste at Site 41 in the Township of Tiny.
This evening, we heard that Bill 32 passed second reading in the Ontario Legislature in a 40 to 11 vote.
Bill 32 is critical because it proposes revocation of the Certificate of Approval needed for a landfill on the site to proceed.
To assist in the broad-based effort to pass Bill 32, Council of Canadians chairperson Maude Barlow wrote an open letter to MPPs, we issued a media release, and we put out an action alert directing people to a petition site that has generated thousands of signatures.
The Orillia Packet and Times reports that, "In a move that surprised many observers, a number of Liberals voted for the bill, along with (MPP Garfield) Dunlop's Conservative colleagues and the NDP."
