Last Day - Foundry Consultation
From our Partner - the Friends of the Foundry:
FIRST, GOOD NEWS! Toronto Star features a column about community resistance to the Foundry MZO. Give yourself a pat on the back! Whether you live in a condo or not, you’re making a difference.
URGENT: The Province's request for public comments about the Foundry closes Thurs March 4 (tomorrow)If you haven't submitted your comments, please do so now (and bcc firstname.lastname@example.org).
Also, please forward this message to 5 friends in Ontario, asking them to submit their comments, too (bcc-ing us at email@example.com if they're willing).

We suggest asking for dialogue: showing an interest in the issue, but persistently asking them for clarification on how they will evaluate and use the input.
Want to do more?If you've still got time after sending in your comments, here are 3 more things you can do:
Thanks so much for your time and efforts.
Friends of the Foundry
*What are the Province's plans, you ask? Turns out the Foundry Site was pre-sold — before the issuance of the MZO and before the Heritage Impact Assessment was tabled. Feel free to express outrage at that in your letter, and on social media.
