Consultation: Ontario Conservation Authorities

I have had significant dealings with the Conservation Authorities in my riding, both before being elected and since.

I cannot count the number of times I have intervened and advocated for my constituents over unjust demands, incompetence, misapplication of regulations, or actions that are ultra vires.

I encourage everyone to participate in the public consultation process to make your ideas and concerns known.

The cut off for feedback is March 13th, so time is of the essence.

Radical Protestors Calling for a Shutdown to CanidI am pleased to see some of the railway blockades ending, however we all know that until there is fundamental change, blockades, protests, and irreparable harm to our economy will continue.

Ending the Indian Act, Blockades, and Hypocrisy

Radical Protestors Calling for a Shutdown to Canid

While politicians refuse to act for fear of losing a few votes, small groups of radical, privileged and dishonest idealogues are attempting to derail Canadian society.

These groups have hijacked our charitable dispositions, successfully stifled our freedom of speech through coercive political correctness, distorted our education, rewritten our history, abused freedom of assembly, caused financial harm and grave disruptions to our economy, while seeking to impoverish and lower the standards of all Canadians regardless of their ancestry. They seek to prevent the Indigenous peoples from sharing in the fruits of a modern society while enshrining their dependence onto a welfare state.

Randy Hillier: Want to affect change? Skip the form letters

As a member of Ontario’s provincial parliament, I sincerely enjoy reading correspondence from, and conversing with, individuals who share with me their unique experiences that illustrate and justify amending public policies, statutes or regulations. Not only do these personal perspectives assist me in understanding the nuances and complexities of the issues involved, they also help in developing public policy solutions to the problems.

I place considerable weight on these personal interactions, but with advancements in technology, including social media, this form of communication is increasingly being replaced with the speed and convenience of form emails that are composed by others and empty of any personal experiences or meaningful insights.
