  1. Too bad about Nature Canada’s “worries”……………..don’t they know that McGuinty with Bill 55 will sanction the killing of endangered species?………………..geez!………is there a huge “disconnect here”?………………this back door Bill should be front page news all over the world!!!!!

  2. Maybe Toronto should wake up to see what this dictator is doing to our once beautiful Province and all the health problems his green energy law is causing to the people in rural Ontario. Wake up Toronto. The only paper printing the facts is The Toronto Sun.

  3. It’s got nothing to do with the environment or biodiversity. Who cares about a few birds, bats or wetlands! It’s all about the MONEY. If anything gets in the way “change the law”, “take away citizens democratic rights”. McSquinty is so far into the pockets of these carpetbaggers his knuckles are dragging on the ground. The Liberal government is now just a profitable subsidiary for these developers to be used as required.
