Peter Tabuns MPP, Toronto-Danforth

Government of Ontario

Protect the Greenbelt

TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:

WHEREAS the Government has removed 7,400 acres of land from the Greenbelt;

WHEREAS the Government says it will replace the lost land with land elsewhere – but many of the proposed additions are already protected;

WHERAS the Government passed Bill 23, stripping environmental protections to make it easier to build badly planned housing developments;

WHEREAS Ontario is already losing 319.6 acres of farmland daily to development;

WHEREAS the Government Housing Affordability Task Force found there are plenty of places to build homes without destroying the Greenbelt;

WHEREAS the Government’s repeated moves to tear up farmland and bulldoze wetlands have never been about housing, but are about making the rich richer;

WHEREAS greenspaces and farmland are what we rely on to grow our food, support natural habitats and prevent flooding;

THEREFORE WE THE UNDERSIGNED petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to immediately repeal Bill 23, More Homes Built Faster Act,
stop all plans to remove protected land from the Greenbelt & protect existing farmland by passing the NDP’s Protecting Agricultural Land Act.
