Concern over Bill 23 and Greenbelt Development

  • We acknowledge and appreciate that Ontario needs more housing, but there are other options such as increasing urban density and building homes on land that is not protected.
  • With many Canadians now feeling the effects of rising food costs, and the need for local food security, keeping farmland protected is crucial.
  • The adverse effects of climate change is already affecting Canadians. Destroying natural areas that help mitigate flooding and other climate related natural disasters will exacerbate climate related events
  • The best businesses in the world, large and small, have embraced Environmental and Social Governance and understand that protecting the environment is good for the planet and good for business. We expect the same from our government.
  • We urge you to repeal Bill 23 and keep all of the Greenbelt and Ontario natural heritage protected.
