Curious to know how different stakeholders were included in water governance during those early days. e.g. farmers, industry, hydro, urban water utilities. How were decisions about water allocation made?
Trudi Deacon

hi Nekeisha SOS (Stepping Off the Sidwalk) campaign has a petition in place to rezone waterfront property as green/parkland - would it be acceptable to share this with panelists and attendees?

Super review of current situation, Bonnie. I am in a one-percent group in this Zoom session - landowner. In our local area over the last couple of years I perceive aggressive deforestation and aggressive drainage. If feel that the CA is the most important agency providing a buffer against loss of local environmental values.

Thank-you to all pannelits - I was struck by Rob’s discussion of the outcome of ‘Guelph Conference’ during WWII and a key outcome was a paper on Post War Conservation. We find ourselves in the same situation now, looking towards conservation as a recovery tool during this pandemic. It is interesting this is not the first time this approach has been advocated for locally in Ontario.
Trudi Deacon
