A Chatham-Kent farmer is confused by the municipality’s leadership in its greening strategy.
Steve Myslik became curious when he noticed several woodlots disappearing. He says he looked into it and found an investment company is purchasing the lots, clearing them and making room for farmland that can be sold as mutual funds.
Myslik isn’t sure why the municipality is allowing it to happen. “You’ll hear on the radio or see in the news that they’ve planted so many trees… 200, 300. And yet just down the road a ways, a whole woodlot is being eliminated and yet Chatham-Kent just stands back. They refuse to put any kind of regulation on it.”
Myslik has launched a website called Chatham-Kent Enough Is Enough for people to share information and discuss ways to preserve remaining woodlots.
