The Oak Ridges Moraine, geologically part of Canada since the last major ice age, is one of Canada's most important water supplies. Nearly 1,900 square kilometers, the Moraine flows through 64 major rivers which connect to the great lakes, most prominently, Lake Ontario. The Moraine maintains: permanent and ephemeral streams, wetlands, kettle lakes and ponds, seepage areas and springs, and aquifers and other recharge areas. It is home to more than 1700 plant species, and contains immense amounts of biodiversity.

 

But in recent years, the Oak Ridges Moraine riskes being contaminated and destroyed. This proves a MAJOR problem to Canada's water supply system, as contaminated water from the Moraine flows into Lake Ontario, where it is then transported to the taps of the millions of citizens in Canada.

This poses a SERIOUS problem, as millions of people living in Canada risk drinking/using contaminated water from contaminated soil dumped into the Moraine. This is caused by the development near the Moraine. As the Moraine area becomes more urban, more construction projects will begin and even more contaminated water will be dumped into the Moraine. If this happens, the consequences will be MUCH MORE WORSE than various tap waters being contaminated. The citizens of Canada will risk contracting diseases or viruses transported through the intoxicated water, which may cause a disease epidemic, potentially costing more than millions of people.

 

But we have a plan. The DtORM/DORM [Defend the Oak Ridges Moraine] Foundation plans to introduce and implement new laws around the Moraine area to preserve the land. We plan to cut the rate of development down to 50 buildings per 500km a year. This way, construction will be drastically reduced and the dummping of contaminated soil will cease to exist.

We need YOUR help. The citizens of Canada depend on your choices. If we can reach 100 signatures, we will send a letter to the Provincial Government of Canada, including the new laws that we wish to implement.

 

Take a Stand for the Oak Ridges Moraine TODAY.
