Today the Ontario Greenbelt Alliance (OGA) released a map highlighting the potential harmful impacts of more than 650 requests, by developers and municipalities to the Ontario government, to remove land from Ontario’s protected Greenbelt. The map pinpoints just one-third of the 650 requests made by developers and municipalities to remove protected lands from the Greenbelt. Although only a fraction of the total requests, the portion mapped is almost 11,000 hectares (27,000 acres). You can read the full press release here.
If you care about the Greenbelt, take action now!
Some developers are aggressively lobbying the province to take farms and forests out of the Greenbelt. Send a letter to the Premier today urging her to keep the Greenbelt off limits to sprawl.
