…THE COMPLETION OF THE ROUGE NATIONAL URBAN PARK PROGRAM
Three new park area Scarborough and Markham Liberal MP’s will meet to discuss aspects of the new Rouge National Urban Park. Gary Anandasangaree, MP for Scarborough Rouge River said ‘ We’ll work hard to get the full dream that Rouge really was’.
Park farmer leasees may have some worries as their long-time champion, defeated MP Paul Calandra won’t be around to offer his usually supportive voice.
Lets all support the new area MP’s efforts to work towards a realistic, positive and rapid completion of this major unique national park concept…
Previously, a few park proponents got caught up in irrelevant and non-applicable terminologies, thereby slowing down the whole park development process.

With the Canadian National Election dust settling it appears that the following statement contained in the Liberal Party election platform- ” We will also complete the necessary agreement with the Ontario Government to finalize the creation of the country’s first urban National Park, ROUGE NATIONAL PARK”– is bringing comfort to those many, many Rouge Park project supporters.
Also, Ontario Cabinet Minister, Brad Duguid, responsible for the transfer of provincial lands to fulfill a previously signed agreement with Parks Canada and the Federal Government said as soon as the (Federal) environment Minister is chosen the province will join an effort to turn the park, which the previous government created through legislation, into what it should be. ‘In the coming weeks we’ll be starting that work”. he said, according to the Scarbough Mirror.
