Proposed changes to Greenbelt risk 'irreversible harm,'

Parks Canada has issued a stark rebuke to Ontario's plan to open up sections of protected Greenbelt land for housing development, saying the move risks "irreversible harm" and that proper consultation on the proposal has not taken place. In a letter submitted to the provincial government Monday, Parks Canada listed issues for consideration for the proposal to remove lands from the Greenbelt in the Greater Toronto Area, particularly when it comes to lands in and around Rouge National Urban Park.

      Housing is a valid concern. However, cutting through a protected area does not help anyone in the long run. An alternative need to be sought after.

        This should not be allowed at any cost,the greenbelt safeguards the vital resources that clean our air and water and it ensures that there' is greenspaces to explore.

          The Canadian government should not allow this to happen. Could they for a while peep into the future through their current actions.
