A rally is being held on Thursday, Jan.19, at 4:00 p.m. for ctizens who want to tell the Ontario government that "they cannot keep bulldozing over the precious farmland that feeds us and the wetlands that protect us from extreme weather."

The government is opening up 7,400 acres of protected Greenbelt land to pro-sprawl developers through Bill 23.

The bill and associated policy changes, will:

  • Create a process for selling off conservation lands without oversight
  • Strip conservation authorities of their powers to help protect us from floods
  • Remove protections from woodlands, wetlands and wildlife habitat

All this while doing almost nothing to build more affordable homes inside of our cities and towns where they are needed.

Date: Thursday, Jan. 19, 2023

Time: 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Place: Meet at the Gitche Namewikwedong (10th Street) Bridge, downtown Owen Sound
