McGuinty Liberals Protecting The Environment



    New Liberal Ad Features Change That's Working

    VAUGHAN, ON, Aug. 14 /CNW/ - The Ontario Liberal Party has launched
another ad in its "Change That's Working" series of television ads. The latest
one features Deb Schulte, co-chair of the Friends of Boyd Park.
    Under the previous Conservative government, a four-lane highway was
slated to go right through Boyd Park, destroying one of the few remaining
interior forests in Southern Ontario and damaging the delicate natural
ecosystem that exists there. Not only did the McGuinty Liberals stop the road
from going through this wonderful park, they also included it in the Greenbelt
Protection Act.
    "Dalton McGuinty gets it," says Schulte in the ad. "He actually has the
conviction and the compassion to build a sustainable future for Ontarians."
    The Greenbelt is an important element of the McGuinty Liberals' plan to
tackle gridlock, contain sprawl and protect greenspace. It preserves a
greenspace in Southern Ontario the size of PEI that includes farmland,
forests, wetlands and watersheds. The Greenbelt is creating a living legacy
that will make a real difference to the health of our environment and the
health and quality of life for Ontarians.
    Protecting valuable greenspace is just one part of the McGuinty
government's strategy for improving the health of our environment, which also
includes:

    
    -  Committing to reducing greenhouse gases to six per cent below 1990
       levels by 2014
    -  Launching a $17.5 billion, multi-year rapid transit action plan that
       will build 902 kilometres of new or improved rapid transit in the
       Greater Toronto Area and Hamilton
    -  Investing $6.6 million in a Community Go Green Fund for community,
       grassroots, greenhouse gas reduction projects and public education
    -  Investing $9 million in the Ontario Biogas Systems Financial
       Assistance Program to help turn greenhouse gases from farms into clean
       energy
    

    The television ads were paid for by the Ontario Liberal Party and can be
