Citizens are organizing to support the Region of Waterloo’s Official Plan for Smart Growth, in face of the OMB ruling against it in January, which favoured developers and urban sprawl.
See Smart Growth Waterloo Region’s What Can I Do.
A great deal is at stake here:
- Waterloo’s precious remaining farmland, that can never be replaced.
- Democracy – the right to make local decisions, and not have them struck down by an unelected commission.
- The precedent it sets for all of Ontario.
