Wynne Government Throws Endangered Species Under the Bus?

TORONTO, March 18, 2015 /CNW/ - Tomorrow Ontario's Divisional Court will hear arguments on the role of government in protecting endangered species. Previously, if a project could harm a species or its habitat government officials normally reviewed the proposal. Now it appears the Wynne government may be saying developers will decide what, if any, protection is necessary. "To us, it looks like the government has decided to put the foxes in charge of the hen house" said Maria De Melo of Durham Area Citizens for Endangered Species, who are challenging this unprecedented approach.
