Ontario’s NDP calls on Ford to Stop His Latest Attempt to Punch Holes in Greenbelt

A Statement from Ontario’s Official Oppostion NDP on the Ford government’s Move to Sell off ‘Chunks’ of our farmlands to developers

Posted November 7th, 2022 on Niagara At Large

QUEEN’S PARK — Peter Tabuns, Interim Ontario NDP Leader and Climate Crisis critic, released the following statement in response to the Ford government’s latest scheme to remove protected land from the Greenbelt:

“It’s disturbing that Doug Ford is taking another run at punching holes in the Greenbelt.

Our green space and farmland have always been in Ford’s crosshairs. He’s on an anti-environment crusade on behalf of his billionaire developer buddies.

This is about making the rich richer. Ford’s moves to tear up farmland and bulldoze wetlands have never been about housing.

Mr. Ford has backed off his schemes to carve up the Greenbelt before after facing public outcry, and the NDP won’t rest until he backs off, again.”
