NDP responds to new revelations of Ford’s developer relationships

Published on February 10, 2023

QUEEN’S PARK – The Toronto Star reported new revelations about Doug Ford’s relationships with Greenbelt developers. Marit Stiles, Leader of the Ontario NDP, put out the following response:

“There's mounting evidence that Ford’s cozy relationship with developers has crossed the line.

These developers include the very people who directly benefitted from the Ford government’s decision to carve up the Greenbelt and other special favours – what exactly were they talking about at that table?

I will be immediately pursuing all options to get to the bottom of what exactly happened here. That includes submitting a further complaint with the Integrity Commissioner and ensuring all the facts that have now come to light are being considered.

Ontarians deserve not just answers about Ford’s conduct, but a government with integrity that always puts their interests first. I am committed to making sure that they get both."
