New Report: Who Will Take Care of Lake Simcoe?

New Report: Who Will Take Care of Lake Simcoe?

A 2022 Update on the “Lake Simcoe Under Pressure” Report

This morning, our partners at the Rescue Lake Simcoe Coalition and Simcoe County Greenbelt Coalition released a damning new report on the multiple ongoing threats to the health of Lake Simcoe and its surrounding ecosystems. 

The introduction declares, “Based on the actions and plans of the province on these [threats] over the last year, there is no rational basis for optimism for Lake Simcoe.”

This sobering beginning is followed by an assessment of the threats identified in 2021 and their current status. Each threat, bar one, was assessed as “Very High”. The only outlier was deemed “High”. 

We urge everyone to read the report. You can also donate towards Protecting and Restoring Lake Simcoe.
