On June 26, Markham Council voted Councillor Shore’s motion to stop bioreactor project.
The outcome of the vote for the motion was UNBELIEVABLE – ALL 12 councillors in favour of Councillor Shore’s motion to kill the project with only the Mayor voting against it. There were a couple of small amendments and there will likely be a meeting in the fall for the city to report back on three points related to leachate recovery, modernization of the gas monitoring system and changing title of the site. We had over 100 residents filling the chambers and tremendous support of the community!
Many Councillors admitted that they were impressed how unanimous, enthusiastic and organized our community was and this certainly influenced their decision.
We thank everyone who helped save our park and prove that together we are strong!
