Statement from Minister Yurek following Auditor General's appointment of new Commissioner
of the Environment
July 10, 2019 - "A clean environment is important to our health, our wellbeing and
our economic prosperity. Our government is committed to transparency and accountability
when it comes to protecting the Ontario we know and love.
Our Made-in-Ontario Environment Plan reflects our government's commitment to keep
our province beautiful by protecting our air, land and water, preventing and reducing
litter and waste, supporting Ontarians to continue to do their share to reduce greenhouse
gas emissions, and helping communities and families prepare for climate change.
I look forward to working with the new Commissioner of the Environment, Jerry V.
DeMarco, as well as Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk, as we continue to ensure Ontario
has both a healthy environment and a healthy economy for generations to come."
