An application was made to remove five green belt sites for development. These five line sites represent about 92 percent of the approximately 7,400 acres removed. Green Belt criteria for land development were modified and consideration of agricultural and environmental factors was eliminated, raises serious concerns about the exercise used and the way in which standard data collection and data collection protocols were set aside or abandoned. of decisions this field used to be part of the greenbelt belt in September it was still protected when the company would develop ties with the provincial conservatives bought it for $80 million a month later the Ontario government revealed that this land would be approved for development there is corruption here and I think the auditor general's report shows that's largely the case Calls for the resignation of Ontario's Housing Minister and his chief of staff went unanswered today I approved it at the end of the day I take full responsibility for the process auditor general made 15 recommendations Prime Minister Ford said his The government will adopt all but one: a call to reassess lands being removed from the Green Belt.
We have a housing crisis like the Witches province in this country has never seen before. Prime Minister Ford has promised to build 1.5 million homes over the next. Today's report of the decade points out that land scarcity is not the cause of the problem. There is land available both within existing urbanized areas and on undeveloped land outside the Green Belt, when we know that the best evidence and the biased evidence were presented, then we end up with a process of failure and bias, the director of the Greenbelt Coalition believes that radians across the country need to pay attention in Ontario, they went after the largest piece of environmentally protected land, cut it down, sold it to their friends and no one did anything about it, so what's going on?
