Support for Growing the Greenbelt into Toronto

We [insert name of organization] fully support Toronto City Council’s plan to grow the Greenbelt into Toronto by adding public lands in the Humber and Don River Valleys and along Etobicoke Creek.

We call on Toronto City Council and the Province of Ontario to move as quickly as possible to include these public lands in the Greenbelt so that Torontonians will visit the Greenbelt right in our back yard.

Ontario’s world renowned Greenbelt protects environmentally sensitive areas and productive farmlands from urban development and sprawl. The public lands in Toronto’s urban river valleys are valued as ecological and recreational spaces but they are also important corridors that connect the Greenbelt to Lake Ontario. To make this connection clear and help Torontonians appreciate it, it’s time for all these lands to be part of the Greenbelt.
