It would be difficult to find a more unsuitable choice to head the Greenbelt Council, the agency that advises on Ontario's Greenbelt, than Norm Sterling. The Greenbelt is a protected area of forests, farmland, wetlands, rivers, and lakes stretching from the Niagara Escarpment through the Oak Ridges Moraine, a primary water source for many municipalities. Mr. Sterling has demonstrated his contempt for the very idea of the Greenbelt, as he voted against it's creation in 2005. As well, Mr. Sterling was Mike Harris' Environment Minister at the time of the Walkerton tragedy, further demonstrating his professional unsuitability for such an important post as this. The pandemic has shown us how important our limited green spaces are to Ontarians, with our hiking trails full to overflowing. Sterling's appointment is obviously a prelude to further assaults on these precious resources by Doug Ford, who clearly just sees the Greenbelt as an obstacle to highways and an opportunity for developers. Don't stand for Norm Sterling as head of the Greenbelt Council.
