A healthy environment is critical to Simcoe County’s future.
Farmland, water and natural heritage are key components of a healthy environment and thriving economy, and need better protection.
The Simcoe County Greenbelt Coalition is calling for the expansion of the Greenbelt to Simcoe County, so that current and future generations can benefit from clean water, local food and green spaces.
To help make caring for the environment an issue this election campaign, we've created a page that you can use to send a message to candidates in your riding.
To make it even easier we've added a message that you can use, or, of course, you can write your own.
Help protect farmland, water, and the environment.
