In the midst of our affordable housing and environmental crises, the Province keeps pushing detached houses on precious farmland and natural spaces.
Furthering the devastation of Bill 23, the Ontario government now proposes full-throttle sprawl that undermines sustainable, transit-supportive, affordable communities. They want to cut policies requiring efficient, environmentally-sensitive growth. They want to allow every farm three severances and up to 12 homes. The government even wants to delete the Provincial definition of “affordable housing”.
But we cannot be deceived. We know the facts:
The government has a duty to consult First Nations.
Municipalities already have enough land to build over 2 million homes.
Focusing on supply without considering affordability cannot fix our crisis.
Join us in refusing the false choice between affordable housing and sustainable, local decision-making.
Bring out the family and the picnic basket! Let’s stop The Big Sprawl.
(The picnic is a “bring your own” event. We’ll provide great company.)
