Ford’s wedding woes keep piling up
February 23, 2023
QUEEN'S PARK — Ontario Greens leader and MPP for Guelph Mike Schreiner released the following statement in response to reports that provide more detail on the list of developers, lobbyists and government appointees who attended events related to the Premier’s daughter’s wedding.
“The revelations just keep on coming. With every passing day, we learn more about the lobbyists, developers, and government appointees who attended Ford family wedding events.
Among the attendees of these so-called personal, family events:
A lobbyist and former Ford staffer who now works for multiple development corporations – one of which is now seeking Ontario’s permission to develop on 160 acres of Greenbelt land in Richmond Hill.
Six developers, one of whom was appointed to the York Region Police Services Board just one month after the wedding.
Another is chair of the Ontario Place Corporation.
How can the Premier claim with a straight face that this is a private matter?
How can the people of Ontario trust the Premier to make decisions in the public interest that set the course for the province’s economic and environmental wellbeing for generations to come?
And how can the Ford government continue on with their costly, destructive Greenbelt development plans when they are clearly not in the public interest?
Ontarians are justified in their outrage.
Once again, this kind of conduct is unacceptable. I renew my call for the Premier to come clean on the real nature of these so-called personal matters, to repeal Bill 23 and to immediately halt plans to carve up our Greenbelt.”
