Niagara Escarpment Plan Celebrates 25 Years

Former Premier Bill Davis Fetes Escarpment Protection and Addition of 750 Hectares

On June 15 at Queen's Park, environmental supporters, business leaders and political types joined guest of honour, former Premier Bill Davis, to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Niagara Escarpment Plan - Canada's First Green Plan.

The event was made sweeter by Minister of Natural Resources Linda Jeffrey's announcement of the government's decision to add 750 hectares to the iconic plan.

Singer/songwriter/activist Sarah Harmer was also on hand to perform a song from her new album oh little fire, as well as the popular 'Escarpment Blues', during which she cheered people to sing along with the lyrics.

The Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation congratulates the Niagara Escarpment and it's supporters in achieving this important milestone and looks forward to celebrating the Greenbelt Act's 25th anniversary - in 20 more years!
