Promise made, promise broken.
Doug Ford plans to open up 7,400 acres of protected Greenbelt land to pro-sprawl developers.
And he’s still determined to build the disastrous Greenbelt highways – Highway 413 and the Bradford Bypass – that will pave over thousands of acres of farmland and pump millions of tonnes of carbon pollution into the atmosphere.
We can’t keep bulldozing the precious farmland that feeds us and the wetlands that protect us from extreme weather.
We can stop this.
Ford tried the same thing four years ago but had to back down when the people rose up and said no. It’s time for more people power.
Tell Doug Ford: Hands off the Greenbelt!
THEN:Doug Ford, May 1, 2018
“We won’t touch the Greenbelt – that’s it.”
