A Ford government order that conservation authorities halt non-essential activities could trigger the closure of Black Creek Pioneer Village, conservation areas and nature trails, the chair of the agency protecting GTA watersheds is warning fellow board members and the government.

In an email to the board Thursday, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority chair Jennifer Innis said she had "in-depth conversation" with representatives of Environment Minister Jeff Yurek about TRCA concerns with the controversial directive sent last Friday to Ontario's 36 authorities.

Yurek's letter "indicated that CAs must begin to 'wind down' non-core programs and services," Innis, a Caledon regional councillor, told board members in the correspondence obtained by the Star.
