I’m asking for your immediate help on an important Bill that will affect all of us in Ontario and have long-lasting effects for cottagers: AMEND BILL 23
I’m talking about the currently proposed Bill 23, More Homes Built Faster Act 2022, which will overturn Ontario’s land-use planning practices and override environmental protections as the government moves to promote building 1.5 million homes in the province over the next 10 years.
It doesn’t have to be this way. I believe that changing land use to build new homes requires thoughtful and careful planning in order to preserve our natural heritage.
Instead, Bill 23 will amend the Planning Act, Development Charges Act, the Ontario Heritage Act, Ontario Land Tribunal Act, the Conservation Authorities Act, and others. In doing so, it will threaten greenbelts, conservation areas and have the potential to increase construction in cottage country!
