Ontario Proposes to Remove 7,400 Acres of Habitat in the Greenbelt

Ontario’s provincial government has launched a thirty-day consultation on their proposal to remove 7,400 acres of land from the Greenbelt to make room for housing. Ontario’s Greenbelt is home to seventy-eight species at risk in the province. It was established in 2005 to protect some of Ontario’s most at-risk ecosystems and critical habitats from sprawling urban development.
