Want to have a say in government decisions? Feel like policies and legislation don't reflect your values and beliefs? Under the Environmental Bill of Rights, Ontarian's have a right to know about — and have a say in — government decisions that affect the environment. The government posts environmentally significant proposals on the online Environmental Registry for you to read and comment on. Instructions for how you can comment individually on environmentally significant policies, acts and regulations can be found [here](http://eco.on.ca/your-rights/how-to-comment-on-government-proposals/) and [here](https://www.ebr.gov.on.ca/ERS-WEB-External/content/index2.jsp?f0=faq.info&f1=faq.info.value&menuIndex=4_1&language=en). If you would like to share your comments, feel free to post them on this forum. Want to share your opinions/knowledge/experiences, but don't have the time to submit a formal comment, post it here as well. If we get a large number of comments and discussions, ELB will write a letter outlining the stance of our members, and each of you will get a chance to sign your names to it. By unifying our voices ELB can make a greater impact on the policy that shapes our futures.
