Another $26.8 million for Rouge National Urban Park…

The Canadian Government has committed an additional $26.8 million for the Rouge after announcing the transfer of an additional 5200 acres from the former Pickering airport lands. This is added to the already committed to $142 million federal government funds for the development of the new Rouge National Urban Park over the next 10 years.

All that is left to complete the planned park is for the Ontario Government to live up to their signed commitment to transfer those adjacent provincial lands to Parks Canada so that the entire new park system can be managed to the highest park and environmental standards that Parks Canada is famous world-wide for…

Protected, too, are those  Class 1 agricultural lands found within the Park boundaries, these to be operated to the highest possible and practical standards.
