Of course not, Silly, but it's Canada that we live in and it's our Canadian environment that we are discussing.
Here in 'The Land of Bureaucratic Lunacy' our crafty legislators concocted a wicked scheme to offload their responsibility for our environment to an unaccountable arms length agency for the sole purpose of shielding themselves from public scrutiny.
.Bureaucratic offloading of responsibility has created an overabundance of resource-consuming agencies requiring 25% of our workforce, which is causing the despicable desperation for cash and is the primary driver of poverty and homelessness. No amount of 'Machiavellian Scheming' can overcome the imbalance of too much overhead!
The long overdue letter from the environment minister (below) clearly points to the fact that our bragging conservation authorities have been operating outside of their mandate in their zealous criminal persecutions of innocent Canadian Citizens.
.Let's hope that the Ministry has put a stop to the CA's plan to increase their maximum fines on average hard-working Citizens from $10K to a Citizen destroying $50K and their attempt to double CA control over private property from 120 meters to 250 meters from any little stream, which is creating a parallel and more powerful municipal government with none of the municipal government responsibilities.
For those still drinking the CA kool-Aid please follow the Links below to get an inkling of how the CA's have savaged innocent Citizens while remaining silent when it matters.
Following decades of 'Bovine Waste' the electorate sent a very convincing message to the powers that be, that they simply 'had enough' by turfing any and all politicians that they believed did not represent their needs or the best interest of their environment.
"After decades of Conservation Authority's empire building and coning society of their great value at protecting our environment, we have spent $billions only to arrive at a situation of devastated families, polluted beaches, polluted great lakes, polluted rivers, polluted groundwater and leaching carcinogenic toxins!" - Preston Haskell
The tragedy lies in the fact that with all the totally ignored large scale destruction our environment our Conservation Authorities criminally persecute individual innocent Citizens by cunningly convincing our courts to destroy them!
Here is a story of a couple who did everything right to start their little business in Welland, Ontario only to be destroyed by the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority. (NPCA)
On top of going back to college, getting all required permits and even paying $thousands for an environment assessment the NPCA crushed them after their first few sales and on what basis?
On the basis of connected underground aquifers, a non-existent Black Gum Tree and a dead turtle skeleton in the roadside ditch.
The Laws permitting this lunacy run closely akin to the old witch-craft trials.
Then there is the story of a couple who made the big mistake of purchasing a so-called ‘Provincially Significant Wetland’ predicated on their love of all things in nature.
Mistake, because taking on the obligation as official PSW managers, they have suffered harassment, extortion and even malicious prosecution, which the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority has been known for in the past.
The Niagara Regional Government not only condones this specious conduct, but they even participate by lending regional staff time and facilities including their legal department.
This crime story began when Conservation authority drained ‘CONSERVATION Land’ onto the White Family farm. Mr. White senior died under the strain of illicit litigation leaving Son Dave and his Mother to carry on defending their innocence against NPCA employee perjurers, who were themselves terminated for not lying good enough!
Dave complained because the CA was flooding his land. So the Conservation Authority simply changed the designation of Dave’s land to wetland and charged him and his mother with farming a wetland. After four years in court, their entire life savings was sucked out of them.
The Region’s lawyer, representing the Conservation Authority asked the judge to have Dave White and his 82-year-old mother thrown into prison for 2 years and he also requested a $50,000 fine plus costs and all this in the NPCA’s failed attempt to pad their bank account.
However, Dave had proven that the Conservation Authority had changed the mapping and the water course flow in the creeks — amongst other things — to suit their own case.
In the end, the judge saw through the malicious scheme and chastised Niagara Region's Lawyer for using the court system as a weapon against common people.
Another failed and costly attempt involved the NPCA in a decades long vendetta against an innocent City of St. Catharines, Ontario resident.
A cabal of so called environment protectors unleashed a tyrannical assault, not only against an innocent citizen, but also against the environment that they are supposed to protect!
Perhaps no other story epitomizes the tyrannical predilection of the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority as that of Mr. Len Greenaway’s story recently written in Niagara this week Newspaper.
The NPCA cannot claim any description other than tyrannical when it accepts donated property and then cuts off common and traditional emergency water supply simply because it has acquired that power!
The NPCA has be getting away with tyranny based on framing their tyranny as conservation!
Other NPCA tyrannical activities include their attempt to destroy the last remaining 'Wetland Forest' in Niagara Falls, Ontario in favor of Rich Chinese Developers!
NPCA Tyrants take custody of popular hiking forest and immediately sell off healthy old growth trees leaving the tree tops cluttering the hiking trails!
NPCA Tyrants allow millions of tons of Carcinogen toxic waste to be piled hundreds of feet high with-in the urban boundaries of Welland , Ontario for a gift of $5million!
NPCA Tyrants expands authority over private property and people’s homes!
The same NPCA tyrants that lord their authority over private citizens and their private property are the same Tyrants that build commercial banquette halls on our much vaunted UNESCO World Biosphere conservation park paid for by the company that created Mount carcinogen!
After losing their years-long persecution against an innocent St. Catharines city resident, the NPCA and City convinced a court that by finishing his legal Solar array project he further violated the law under the spurious argument that he created a new development. This corrupted equity theft cost the Citizen additional $thousands! https://newsalertniagara.blogspot.com/2018/07/an-extraordinarily-disgusting-story.html
Consider Jean and Peter Thomas' story because I believe you will find it interesting to learn that building a sand ring on your property to exercise horses; will land you in court, fighting for your property rights resulting in huge legal fees, a $600,000 lien on your home and tens of thousands in fines and all because they did NO damage to the environment. https://newsalertniagara.blogspot.com/2018/12/how-does-any-self-respecting-government.html
