Take Action: Protect The Greenbelt

Doug Ford is once again putting the Greenbelt at risk. It has now been revealed that Ford’s government held secret talks with real estate developers around opening parts of the Greenbelt to development for nearly a year. The same developers had donated $100,000 to Ford’s campaign [1].

The Greenbelt is made up of forests, farmland, watersheds and wetland. It is one of the world’s largest protected green space. We cannot let developers pave over this vital ecosystem.

Send a letter to Minister Steve Clark and your local MPP demanding that they oppose opening any part of the Greenbelt to private development.

We have seen this story before. Months ago Doug Ford’s Conservatives introduced Bill 66, which if passed would allow businesses to bypass environmental regulations.[2] One of these regulations prevents development within Ontario’s Greenbelt. After massive public outcry, they backed down from this plan.

We have to stay vigilant to keep the Greenbelt safe from private development. Send a letter now and demand the Ford government keep the Greenbelt protected.
