Despite this however there was fear different parts of the municipal system were working against one another Because of this Bob Rae then the Premier of Ontario appointed Anne Golden to head a GTA task force to govern the region's quality of life competitiveness and governance. During this time the Metro Toronto government advocated to the task force the creation of a new GTA authority which would be made up of 21 of the 30 existing municipalities in the GTA at the time the proposal from Metro Toronto would have resulted in 15 new municipalities the City of Mississauga argued consolidation should only take place in such a way the new municipalities would have a population between 400,000 and 800,000 the Town of Markham had similarly advocated municipal consolidation in York Region although it was opposed to complete consolidation into a single municipality Municipal consolidation faced stiff opposition however from smaller communities such as Ajax Milton and the borough of East York the task force's recommendation to eliminate the Metro Toronto government and consolidate its remaining municipalities into an enlarged City of Toronto was completed in 1997 under Mike Harris' Common Sense Revolution. However the task force's recommendation to create a GTA-tier municipality was not taken up by the Harris government fearing a GTA-wide municipality would recreate the inter-municipal competitiveness that was believed to have impaired the former Metro Toronto government Metrolinx was established to oversee public transit development across the Greater Toronto Area Geography, Mississauga 612,925 668,549 713,443 721,599 Imperial conversion 5.4 Racial religious and disability-related issues; Terms of the contract includes:, Simcoe Island 4.1 Alumni, 10 Midfielder Alejandro Pozuelo (DP) Spain 6.2.1 Currency.

Toronto Ontario Canada Business directory Updated July 25 2019 Oswego Italy Sebastian Giovinco 2015 Lake Ontario is the easternmost of the Great Lakes and the smallest in surface area (7,340 sq mi 18,960 km2), although it exceeds Lake Erie in volume (393 cu mi 1,639 km3) It is the 13th largest lake in the world When its islands are included the lake's shoreline is 712 miles (1,146 km) long As the last lake in the Great Lakes' hydrologic chain Lake Ontario has the lowest mean surface elevation of the lakes at 243 feet (74 m) above sea level; 326 feet (99 m) lower than its neighbor upstream Its maximum length is 193 statute miles (311 kilometres; 168 nautical miles) and its maximum width is 53 statute miles (85 km; 46 nmi) the lake's average depth is 47 fathoms 1 foot (283 ft; 86 m) with a maximum depth of 133 fathoms 4 feet (802 ft; 244 m) the lake's primary source is the Niagara River draining Lake Erie with the St Lawrence River serving as the outlet the drainage basin covers 24,720 square miles (64,030 km2) as with all the Great Lakes water levels change both within the year (owing to seasonal changes in water input) and among years (owing to longer term trends in precipitation) These water level fluctuations are an integral part of lake ecology and produce and maintain extensive wetlands the lake also has an important freshwater fishery although it has been negatively affected by factors including over-fishing water pollution and invasive species Baymouth bars built by prevailing winds and currents have created a significant number of lagoons and sheltered harbors mostly near (but not limited to) Prince Edward County Ontario and the easternmost shores Perhaps the best-known example is Toronto Bay chosen as the site of the Upper Canada (Ontario) capital for its strategic harbour Other prominent examples include Hamilton Harbour Irondequoit Bay Presqu'ile Bay and Sodus Bay the bars themselves are the sites of long beaches such as Sandbanks Provincial Park and Sandy Island Beach State Park These sand bars are often associated with large wetlands which support large numbers of plant and animal species as well as providing important rest areas for migratory birds. Presqu'ile on the north shore of Lake Ontario is particularly significant in this regard One unique feature of the lake is the Z-shaped Bay of Quinte which separates Prince Edward County from the Ontario mainland save for a 2-mile (3.2 km) isthmus near Trenton; this feature also supports many wetlands and aquatic plants as well as associated fisheries Major rivers draining into Lake Ontario include the Niagara River Don River Humber River Trent River Cataraqui River Genesee River Oswego River Black River Little Salmon River and the Salmon River Geology.
