Help Save Our Greenbelt!

On November 4th, the Provincial government announced it will pave over parts of Ontario’s popular Greenbelt and allow housing to be built on some 7,400 acres.

We’re not the only ones who are concerned. In fact, we have a donor who has pledged $150,000 for this work if we can match it. So, every dollar you contribute is worth double in our fight to save the Greenbelt.

We need your help to reverse this disastrous decision. We’re going to hammer back — with persuasion, persistence and noise.

Story

Help Save Our Greenbelt!

On November 4th, the Provincial government announced plans to pave over 7,400 acres of Ontario’s world-famous Greenbelt.

This is bad policy. It won’t address the housing crisis and it’s disastrous for farmlands, near-urban nature and water sources. This policy does appear to help one segment of our society: wealthy developers.

We’re going to hammer back and reverse this decision — with persuasion, persistence and noise. We are executing a comprehensive media and awareness campaign in alliance with other organizations across the province. But we need your help to make this happen, to make sure we can flood the airwaves and social media channels with our message and let the people of Ontario and beyond know how they can #SaveOurGreenbelt.

We have a donor who has pledged $150,000 for this work if we can match it. So, every dollar you contribute is worth double in our fight to save the Greenbelt. Please donate today!

Chopping up our Greenbelt is wrong, plain and simple. Why?

  • It is entirely unnecessary. Over 80,000 acres of non-Greenbelt land are available to build housing on. Thousands of new housing units have been approved but are not being built – for example, only 9% of approved homes in the Waterloo Region have been built in the last two decades. There is also lots of room and opportunity to build inside our cities and towns by implementing gentle density, so we build near where people want to live and say NO to sprawl. Just like Hamilton and Halton Region did.
  • Cuts to the Greenbelt will NOT create affordable housing. Developers have made millions due to the rising housing costs over the last decade and these homes will be no exception.
  • We were promised the Greenbelt was safe. Premier Ford even declared his love for the Greenbelt, in a now deleted tweet: “I listened to the people and we are not touching the Greenbelt.”
  • It sets a dangerous precedent. Once some Greenbelt land is developed, all of it is at risk. Other landowners are going to want to cash in on these priceless plots of land.
  • And finally, it’s all a smokescreen. Much of the land proposed for the “swaps” is, in fact, already protected.

As you read this, destructive plans for one of our country’s most beloved and essential near-urban natural treasures are being set in motion. Please donate today to help us save our Greenbelt! You can also contact your MPP using our quick and easy tool!

The Greenbelt is special, but don’t just take our word for it. Watch the following videos to learn more about this national treasure:
