Greenbelt Scandal: Save the Greenbelt

TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:

WHEREAS many Ontarians are struggling to afford rent, mortgages, groceries, gas, and everyday essentials;

WHEREAS decisions were made without consulting Ontarians, without any engagement with First Nations, and all done in backrooms and private dinner parties;

WHEREAS 83% of the lands removed were of the highest agricultural quality in the world;

WHEREAS Ontario’s Housing Affordability Task Force determined that a shortage of land was not the cause of the province’s housing challenges and that the Greenbelt and other environmentally sensitive areas must be protected;

WHEREAS the selling off of the Greenbelt only fuels land speculation;

THEREFORE, WE THE UNDERSIGNED petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to:

  • Immediately recall the Legislature to reverse course and return the lands in question to the Greenbelt.
  • Not stand in the way of any investigation, including any potential criminal investigations.
