Minister's Zoning Orders
Minister's Zoning Orders are ripping up public consultation in the planning process, politicizing it by centralizing decisions in the hands of a few, and ruining key habitat.
Simcoe County is a hot zone for MZOs, and many councils, by supporting them, are acting as if they aren't accountable to the public.
Send an email to the Minister saying that you oppose this undemocratic overreach.
Grow the Greenbelt
In 2015 the Advisory Panel for the Coordinated Review of the Growth Plan, Greenbelt Plan, Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan, and Niagara Escarpment Plan, chaired by David Crombie, reported to the government their recommendations for how Ontario should grow in the coming several decades.
The recommendations of this report show that expanding the Greenbelt is one of the best ways to ensure our children and their children can continue to rely on an environment that supports their health and wellbeing.
