MPP Fraser Responds to Doug Ford’s Comments on the Greenbelt

QUEEN’S PARK – John Fraser, MPP for Ottawa South and Interim Leader of the Ontario Liberal Party, has released the following statement in response to Doug Ford’s comments about the Greenbelt, where he called our protected green space “a big scam.” 

“The Greenbelt is about protecting our environment, our sources of water, and thinking about the health and well-being of future generations. 

“We worked hand in hand with environmental groups to accomplish this goal and to expand the Greenbelt by more than 20,000 acres and 21 river basins.

“The Greenbelt isn’t a partisan issue. People that support all political parties support the Greenbelt. 

“The Premier is just disappointed it took him this long to carve up our green space to reward his rich friends.”
