Hon. Steve Clark: In regard to the DRAP, I have a letter here from Mayor Kevin Ashe from the city of Pickering, dated November 16, which, I think, will address the member’s question. It says:

Subject: City of Pickering, Duffins Rouge Agricultural Preserve Act, 2005, file A-1000-100

"Dear Minister Clark,

You recently received a letter from Mayor Ryan requesting the repeal of the Duffins Rouge Agricultural Preserve Act, 2005, in the city of Pickering. As the newly elected mayor of the city, I would like to support this request."
