What’s the hold up with the Holland Marsh phosphorous pollution reduction project?

Eleven months ago, Ontario’s Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks, David Piccini, announced that the province will provide $24 million for the Holland Marsh phosphorus pollution reduction plant

At the time, Minister Piccini noted that this “is the single largest initiative in Ontario’s history to reduce phosphorus in this lake.” 

And then, crickets . . .

It has been close to a year since we have heard anything about this project, despite following up with the Minister with two key questions:

1.       When will the construction of the pollution reduction plant commence?

2.       When will the plant be operational?

We have received no response.

Please contact Minister Piccini and ask him to answer our questions.   Please tell him it is time for him to:  Get It Done.
