The Lake Simcoe Clean-Up Fund was introduced in 2008 by the previous Conservative Government in an effort to restore Lake Simcoe and protect it for future generations;
Over 10 years this initiative invested $60 million and supported over 140 local grassroots programs. It was successful in improving the cleanliness of Lake Simcoe’s waters and restoring the Lake’s ecosystem to a vibrant and healthy state;
The Government of Canada has since cancelled the Lake Simcoe Clean-Up Fund, putting Lake Simcoe at risk; and
Reinstating the Lake Simcoe Clean-Up Fund would ensure that Lake Simcoe—which is vital in the region as a source of drinking water, recreation, tourism, and a natural habitat—will continue to be cared for and protected for future generations.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to reinstate the Lake Simcoe Clean-Up Fund and allow it to continue its vital support of local programs.
