Save Lake Simcoe: Area Residents Rally to Protest Clean-Up Fund Cancellation


The Lake Simcoe Clean-Up Fund was crucial for protecting and restoring Lake Simcoe, and the Liberal’s decision to cancel it has put our lake at risk.

Acting to protect Lake Simcoe, hundreds of individuals in York-Simcoe sent in letters of support calling on
the Liberals to reverse this decision, and over 1400 area residents signed a petition calling for the Liberal Government to reinstate it the Clean-Up Fund.

MP Peter Van Loan recieved hundreds of letters of support for the Clean-Up Fund from York-Simcoe. The same grassroots, community
initative that supported over 200 Lake Simcoe Clean Up Fund projects will be instrumental in getting the Fund renewed once more.

The Liberal’s 2018 Budget once again did not renew funding for the Lake Simcoe Clean-Up Fund. Despite this, Peter Van Loan will continue to call on the Government to take seriously the need to save our lake and restore the Fund.
