Ford Moves to Subvert our Democracy with Bill 39: MPP Blais

QUEEN’S PARK – Stephen Blais, MPP for Orléans and Ontario Liberal Critic for Municipal Affairs and Housing, has released the following statement in response to the Ford government’s introduction of Bill 39: 

“This government has introduced three housing bills in the last three months, each one consolidating more power into the hands of a select few.

“By giving the Mayors of ‘Strong Cities’ the power to pass bills with support from only one-third of council, while previously providing the power to veto legislation, the Ford government’s sole focus with Bill 39 is to subvert our democracy.

“Instead of tampering with our democracy, the government should focus on building affordable housing – in ways that don’t cause irreversible damage to Ontario’s conservation lands or carve up our Greenbelt.”
