Chris Glover MPP, Spadina–Fort York

Government of Ontario

Respect for Local Planning


WHEREAS the Ford government did not notify City of Toronto staff or City Councillors prior to issuing Ministerial Zoning Orders for three sites in the West Don Lands;

WHEREAS these orders sidestep the local planning process and shutter community input;

WHEREAS local planning should be driven by local communities and the long-term public interest, not dictated by heavy handed orders from the province;

THEREFORE, we the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to:

Call on the provincial government to stop its lobbyist-driven MZOs in the West Don Lands and elsewhere, and restore transparent and evidence-based planning that includes public consultation and respect for heritage conservation, the environment and local decision-making.


Stay Connected! To keep updated, please fill in your email and/or phone number. This portion of the petition will be detached and kept confidential and will not be shared with the provincial government or any other parties.
