HALTON, Jan 26 -- This morning, Ontario Greens leader Mike Schreiner held a virtual news conference to call on Halton to say no to a proposal to pave over 5,000 acres of prime agricultural farmland.
“Urban sprawl is not the solution to the housing crisis,’ Schreiner said. “It’s expensive, terrible for the environment, and destroys farmland and wetlands. No one wants to have an unaffordable lifestyle where they’re forced to commute hours just to find an affordable place to live.”
