The government is proposing significant changes to the Provincial Policy Statement (PPS), which governs land-use in much of Ontario.
Many of the changes proposed are deeply concerning, and continue a pattern, which we have seen with this administration, of putting the interests of developers and those seeking to make a quick buck ahead of citizens.
The posting on the Environmental Registry can be found here.
You can view a recent webinar conducted by CELA on the topic here, the slide deck from that webinar here. CELA's, together with Ecojustice, ERO submission can be found here. Ontario Farmland Trust has submitted comments as well, which can be found here.
