Elizabeth May stands in solidarity with Reimagine Ottawa to stop the destruction of the Central Experimental Farm and Queen Juliana Park.
The City of Ottawa is taking 53 pristine acres of federal land to build a parking garage for the soon to be developed Ottawa Hospital. There are other viable options for the location of the new hospital. Approximately 750 mature and specimen trees will be cut down for this development. When is enough enough?
Earlier this week Elizabeth sent the attached letter to Minister of the Environment Steven Guilbeault asking for a proper review and assessment of the decision to choose this site for the hospital.
Today, Elizabeth tabled this petition. And will continue to do so. The trees are running out of time. The park will soon be gone forever.
We need your help. Visit the Reimagine Ottawa website to learn about the issue. Call your elected representative. Let’s save these trees.
