We want those businesses to succeed by using resources efficiently. It’s time that people who profit from our shared natural resources pay a fair price for the water, aggregates, and minerals they take. Your Green MPPs will push the government to increase royalties and levies for mining, aggregates and  water-taking. The people of Ontario should receive our fair share of revenues from natural resources.
