ACTION ALERT!

The Province’s new housing plans
will destroy farmland

(and housing affordability)

Last week, the Provincial Government introduced two new housing plans: Bill 185 and changes to the Provincial Policy Statement, a powerful planning law that shapes all development in the Province.

The Provincial Government wants you to believe these new actions will help solve the housing crisis. They hope you will ignore the details.

But details matter.

Combined, the two new bills will:

  • Build the wrong type of housing (big, expensive single-family homes) in the wrong places (on farmland, natural areas).
  • Destroy farmland, natural assets and water resources.
  • Divert construction workers and materials away from building the right type of affordable housing we need in the places we want to live.

We need to tell the Provincial Government it’s heading the wrong way. The proposed housing actions will only make things worse.

TAKE ACTION!
