Bill 257, The Supporting Broadband and Infrastructure Expansion Act, has moved through debate in the Legislature and has been scheduled for committee hearings before the Committee of General Government soon.
Bill 257 - is a Bill with three schedules. Two schedules speak to the expansion of Broadband, and Schedule 3 to the ability of this government to change laws to be allowed to harm provincially significant wetland, or other protected environmental areas. The government has a clear anti-environment agenda and is taking remarkable steps to ensure the Duffins Creek wetland will be paved to make way for development and a warehouse.
