In Ontario, we already have enough land for housing. What we don’t have is enough Greenbelt. Many Ontario farm families make an honest living feeding us from Greenbelt land. If Doug Ford takes it away, it’s land speculators who will profit — not farmers or the rest of us. Doug Ford and his developer friends don’t need the Greenbelt, but we do.

Greenbelt Water, Given Away
The Greenbelt’s food, jobs, and clean water are counted on by millions of people, so why is it being given away to fewer than a dozen developers?
Bad News for the Countryside Line
Doug Ford is forcing unsustainable urban sprawl on municipalities. He’s even potentially putting at risk our visionary Countryside Line concept pioneered here in Waterloo Region. Other changes Ford has just pushed through reduce public consultation and muzzle the Grand River Conservation Authority that we need to protect our watershed. Tell your MPP that we already have the sustainable Official Plan we need for the future at www.holdthelinewr.org.
The Ford government is bad news for Waterloo Region. Doug Ford is threatening to override our sustainable Regional Official Plan, potentially forcing thousands of acres of expensive urban sprawl. His housing scheme will destroy our local farms, be unaffordable to most, and will significantly increase our taxes to subsidize developers.
Regional Planning Changes
Despite our unique global success and thriving economy, he just destroyed our visionary, recently adopted Regional Official Plan. He is overriding our regional planning to pave over precious farmland and force unsustainable urban sprawl throughout Waterloo Region. All of which threatens our local groundwater supply.
Tell your MPP we already have the sustainable official plan we need to build more affordable homes and apartments at www.holdthelinewr.org.
