Our larger association, the Georgian Bay Association, is supporting two MPPs who have proposed Bill 279, which will require new clothes washing machines to have filters installed.
This is the result of Georgian Bay Forever’s successful research projects in Parry Sound and Collingwood, which clearly demonstrated that installing these filters reduces microplastics pollution, helps protect the water, environment and ultimately anyone in the area consuming the water.
Time is of the essence! Bill 279 received unanimous approval at First Reading and we are asking for your support on a letter writing campaign to MPPs to ask them to get this Bill passed before Queens Park rises in June for the election. Go to this link to write directly to your representative. It includes a sample letter, or you can write your own.
