What difference does it make as to which party has the best plan to protect the environment? The Ministry of the Environment (MOE), particularly Agatha Garcia-Wright who is the director of the Environmental Approvals Branch (formerly the Environmental ASSESSMENT and Approvals Branch) does not care.
Sincere professional evaluations or justifiably emotional letters written to Garcia-Wright or to the Minister get exactly the same insincere boilerplate response from her. Included in her replies is the "sage" advice to bring ones concerns directly to the proponent. Regarding landfills she does not care and does not even conceal her total disdain for the people who try to advise her PROFESSIONALLY.
Until that attitude is forcefully removed from MOE, it does not matter that the Liberals have been returned, or if the Green Party had been elected, there is no expectation that landfills will be treated with any more regulatory rigor than they are now.
