Letter of Opposition to the Operation and Location of a Thermal Treatment Plant near residential areas in York and Durham Regions sign now

To Whom It May Concern

We the undersigned declare that we are in opposition to the operation and location of any commercially or publicly operated thermal treatment plant in or near residential areas in the Regions of York or Durham.

This opposition stems from our concern for our personal health and that of our families and neighbours. Plant emissions would impact negatively on both the short and long term health of residents. The largest impact would be with our youth and our seniors.

We care immensely for our natural environment including our parklands, forests, homes, playgrounds, rivers, farms and schools. We would not want to see these areas diminished by any commercially or publicly operated thermal treatment plant.

The proposed site is situated on a previously designated Greenbelt area adjacent to the Moraine and the Black River watershed. This is an ecologically sensitive and protected area and as initially stated by York Region representatives, would not be included as a potential site.

Alternatives such as adopting a Zero Waste Strategy are a better solution than incineration. There are better solutions that are better for our health, better for our local and national economy, and better for our children and our planet.

We authorize the Communities First group to convey our message to the Councils of the Municipalities in York and Durham Regions, The Regional Municipality of York and Durham, School Boards, The Provincial Government, The Federal Government and any appropriate Ministry or Institution that may be of assistance to this cause.
