Why this petition matters

Started by Kae Elgie

Ontario's Bill 23, the More Homes Built Faster Act, is a vicious attack on the multicultural and socioeconomic diversity of all Ontario communities.

Bill 23's proposed changes to the Ontario Heritage Act will make it almost impossible to protect anything except mansions built by rich people and properties already designated.*  Important sites like Owen Sound's Potter's Field (unmarked graves of 1300 indigents including many Black settlers fleeing slavery) Toronto's Little Jamaica could not be protected if Bill 23 goes ahead. 

If you want a province where everyone is valued, regardless of their racial, socio-economic or ethnic background, Stop Bill 23.

Bill 23 could be adopted as early as Monday November 28, so please sign the petition today.   

To help even more, call Doug Ford at 416-325-1941 and ask him to stop Bill 23.

*Bill 23 requires properties to meet new criteria to be considered worth protecting,  and gives only two years for 31,000 properties to all meet the new criteria. Watch ACO's press conference for more information https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10gcVvVvZFM&t=18s
