Ravines

GBNA Ravine Protection Policy

Toronto has only two natural resources unique to our city:  the Lake and our ravines and watercourses. These resources should rank culturally and politically as important to the definition of the City of Toronto over time.

There are no effective by-laws with teeth to protect our ravines. Ravines are not  sacrosanct as are our parks. The “Ravine and Natural Feature Protection” by law does not preserve ravines and ravines are not protected in the OP from intensification.

GBNA has delivered a ravine protection policy paper to select councilors and will continue to champion this policy issue by building relationships with other groups across the city, media coverage and political effort. Copy of the GBNA Ravine policy
