A damning report from Ontario’s Auditor General confirms what we’ve long suspected. A few chosen developers received “preferential treatment” to hand-pick 92% of the land that Doug Ford’s government removed from the Greenbelt.1 Now, those developers stand to make $8 billion from that land.2

Doug Ford’s plan to strip 7400 acres from the Greenbelt hurts everyone except these wealthy developers. Developing former Greenbelt land will destroy essential farmland, habitats, and natural areas, threaten 29 at-risk species, and drain public resources for what will be unsustainable and unaffordable housing.3,4,5

In response to the explosive report, Ford said his government would implement 14 of the 15 recommendations made by the Auditor General.6 The one recommendation he won’t accept? To re-evaluate the decision to change the Greenbelt boundaries. In other words, he’ll do everything short of righting his wrongs.

The damning report is all over the headlines and Ford’s government is in the hot seat right now. Will you send a message to Ford and the ministers responsible, calling on them to implement the final recommendation, and restore the land removed from the Greenbelt?
