As Minister of the Environment, you should be the first to defend all areas which are particularly important for the long-term sustainability of our society.
Your insistence on repeating the party line that using Greenbelt and other protected areas is necessary to address the housing shortage is short sighted at best, and duplicitous at worst.
It has become obvious that the recent moves made by your administration have less to do with increasing housing availability and more to do with increasing the profits of developers.
Spare us the speech about the number of homes that will be built as a result of the changes. The housing shortage can be addressed using available properties much better suited to the purpose, instead of McMansions on farmland and wetlands which cannot be replaced. (Designating other areas as replacements is NOT a solution).
More and more people are becoming informed and motivated to oppose the changes rammed through by this current administration.
Some courage and leadership from your office in support of reversing the recent decisions would be appreciated, and noticed by your constituents.
