From Peterborough to Barrie, Toronto, St. Catharines and Waterloo, hundreds of people are participating in the provincial review of the Greenbelt, Oak Ridges Moraine, Niagara Escarpment Plan and Growth Plan. Not only has the turnout and level of engagement exceeded expectations but the thoughtful questions and comments show that people want to make these plans work even better.
Ontario’s Greenbelt protects farmland and natural areas like forests and wetlands from urban sprawl. It ensures that nature isn’t a long drive away, and protects the sources of drinking water for millions of GTA residents. And it ensures that we in the Greater Golden Horseshoe have access to fresh, local food.
