Ontario's Greenbelt has been protected for more than 20 years. It includes some of the best farmland in Canada, and both Conservative and Liberal governments have worked hard to make it an environmental treasure. Now it seems, none of that matters. Premier Doug Ford has decided that developing the Greenbelt is key to the housing crisis and is even giving developers a tax break. Municipalities are not just upset about the environmental destruction, they are angry the tax break to developers could result in higher property taxes.
