We have been very critical of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) process from the beginning.
We feel the Ministry of the Environment should step in and order a fuller and more impartial Environmental Assessment within terms of reference that the MOE approves and consults upon. One that takes into account all the factors that affect our City, not just the ones that are of interest to the engineers and developers. We have outlined the reasons for this request in our Request for a Part II order under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process.
Please read it and consider our objections. It is not as slick or as comprehensive as the AECOM Reports. We didn’t have long to compile it and no one was giving us over a million dollars to work on it. While our group contains members who are highly experienced and skilled in the various factors that went into our objections, the reality is that nearly all of us have day jobs and families.
