Since Doug Ford reneged on his promise to protect the Greenbelt in November, resistance to his proposal has been fierce. In the past week that has culminated in a court challenge as well as a potential investigation by the Ontario Provincial Police. There are other investigations ongoing as well, and public protests at Queen's Park and elsewhere—but can any of it really stop development of the land for new homes?What basis do the investigations and challenges have? What does the Ford government say to answer them? What comes next in Ontario's fiercest environmental battle in years?GUEST: Emma McIntosh, Ontario reporter, The Narwhal

Doug Ford's Ontario government recently announced that parts of the province's Greenbelt would be opened up for development of homes. In this episode of the Hard Truth's podcast, we chat about why that's not a good idea — and why, more generally, we shouldn't be trying to solve our wallet problems by neglecting our climate problems.

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we start wrapping up the year in the same way we started it: political rancour and insurrection! We will briefly pause to consider the potential ramifications of the Federal Liberals winning a Liberal riding in a by-election, and then we will dive into the plot to overthrow Germany. In the back half of the show, we will talk to a fired up Green politician who has some end of the year thoughts. This Thursday, December 15, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss: Mississauga Learning. The ballots are counted and to absolutely no one's surprise, former Ontario Minister of Finance Charles Sousa was elected the new Liberal MP of Mississauga-Lakeshore. One could make a story of Pierre Poilievre's first test of leadership , but isn't the more interesting story the fact that 40 people all ran for this seat. What are we to make of this rare two page ballot in this weirdly timed by-election? They Coup Too Much. Out of Germany is the perhaps the worst instance of online misinformation leading to an attempted government coup since January 6, 2021. A group made up of German aristocracy, QAnon adherents, and (sigh) neo-Nazis were arrested for plotting to remove the German government and they were driven by very specious rationales. How worried should we be about these delusional attacks? Mike Out. At the end of a very busy, and very consequential session at the Ontario Legislature, we're once again joined by Guelph MPP and Green Party leader Mike Schreiner. From misusing the Constitution to stop education workers from striking, to the move on the Greenbelt, to the changes to the municipal democratic order, there's a lot to talk about and Schreiner is definitely going to have a lot to say. Open Sources is live on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca at 5 pm on Thursday.
This episode of Greenbelt's ‘Somewhere To Believe In' comes in the form of a one-off Christmas reflection; brought to you by our friend Beloved Sara Zaltash, a ‘non-denominational rabble-rouser and soul-soother for a world in crisis'. It was our pleasure to welcome Beloved Sara to Greenbelt for the first time this year, along with her heavenly spiritual chants and adaptation of the Islamic Call to Prayer. And now she's back again, reflecting on Christmas, with personal stories of community, songs of hope and prayers of blessings. As Beloved Sara says, we hope ‘you gather around these sounds in warmth and with whatever is dear to you, and that these words shine a beacon of friendship into your Christmas season.' This episode features strong language and references to drugs._Late this November, Greenbelt Festival's Creative Director, Paul Northup, called me with a request to collaborate on something like a podcast, that wasn't quite a podcast, to be shared with the Greenbelt community this Christmastime. I wish I could say that the first emotion I experienced was humility. I wish I was that saint! In truth, I was overwhelmed with giddy delight. Was I really being asked to share my thoughts, stories and songs with the Greenbelt community, that vital and gorgeous and exceptionally kind bunch of people that had won my heart this summer when I performed at the festival? In truth, it took a whole afternoon of pinching myself before the thrill of Paul's request subsided, before I could settle into what was being asked of me. Did Greenbelters really want to hear more from me? What can I give them, poor as I am? As the start of Advent loomed, Paul and I realised that the task ahead was greater than the time available, and that we needed a different approach. Paul wondered about centering the not-exactly-a-podcast on my voice, seeing as it was my voice that had been received so kindly by Greenbelters at the festival. It was then that I remembered a piece of storytelling I had written for a guest slot at Sunday Assembly East End in December 2016 - a personal story, woven with song, that was Christmassy and yet not-exactly-Christmassy. This story is what we have chosen to share with you this year. Funnily enough, Sunday Assembly thought that the story was actually too Christian for their congregation. For me, this story abridges my whole life's experience of sincere acceptance, inclusion and welcome into Christian community, regardless of how I have shown up. This story does not promote any specific belief or doctrine, except perhaps the belief in the redemptive power of song. That's what we have to give you; we give our hearts. Thank you for all of the support and willingness offered by the Greenbelt team and not-quite-podcast contributors. Thank you especially to Abigail Maxwell, a Greenbelter and Quaker who provides us with a sobering prayer of blessing that we can hold alongside the gladness of the season. I pray that our offering greets you in the finest health, that you gather around these sounds in warmth and with whatever is dear to you, and that these words shine a beacon of friendship into your Christmas season.Yours ever, Your own, Beloved Sara Zaltash_00:00 - Introduction01:45 - In the bleak midwinter07:33 - A Christmas song10:04 - Eric16:16 - School28:10 - Merry Christmas28:37 - A prayer of blessing31:04 - ‘In the Bleak Midwinter' song Hosted on Acast.

After much consternation regarding the potential for land in the Greenbelt being sold to land developers, a request was made on Twitter to see MPPs Donna Skelly and Neil Lumsden appear before Hamilton's city council to find out more about this. Scott welcomes MPP Donna Skelly to the show to speak about exactly this. Guest: Donna Skelly, MPP for Flamborough-Glanbrook - While housing markets across the country seem to be rebounding and shifting, we're being told that this is not the case here in Hamilton. Despite being an area that sees lots of people wanting to move to it, why is the housing market being seen as a cold one? Guest: Dr. Murtaza Haider, Associate Professor, Data Science and Real Estate Management, Toronto Metropolitan University - Brittney Griner is on her way back to the US, Buffalo sports fans are still being hit with a curse and more money is being paid out to athletes who are already making a ton of money (in the hundreds of millions). It's a lot to tackle which means Scott needs to bring out the big guns of Steve Foxcroft! Guest: Steve Foxcroft, NFL Chain-Gang Member, Vice-President, Fluke Transport
A woman says she was stabbed with a needle by a stranger while walking in downtown Toronto; a developer got a 21 per cent loan in order to purchase a swath of protected Greenbelt land that was later released for development; and, a Toronto man lost $50,000 to a cryptocurrency scam.

York Memorial students walked out of the classroom amid continuous reports of violence and "constant chaos"; concerns are being raised about the sale of Greenbelt land that was earmarked for a future Ontario hospital site; and, here's why you should switch from single-use batteries to reusable ones.
We talk about government corruption regarding the Greenbelt, and Ontario's Bill 23. Stefan speaks with Sarah Buchanan of the Toronto Environmental Alliance (TEA) as well as Dr. Mili Roy of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment (CAPE) about the Bill.
On Monday, Ontario passed the “More Homes Built Faster Act” – a controversial part of Premier Doug Ford's plan for 1.5 million new homes in the next decade. Bill 23 includes measures like reducing developer fees that cities say are crucial for services and infrastructure and permits triplexes on single residential lots. Ford has also already given the mayors of Toronto and Ottawa extraordinary powers, including overruling majority votes in city council in certain circumstances. And the Ford government is moving to open up parts of the province's Greenbelt for development – a supposedly permanently protected area that Ford said he wouldn't “touch.” Today, CBC Toronto reporter Ryan Patrick Jones joins us to explain the controversies over Ford's housing plan, and why critics say it's the wrong kind of vision for a growing province.

Guests: Star reporters Noor Javed and Brendan Kennedy and Emma McIntosh from The Narwhal The Ontario government has decided to change its position and build on the Greenbelt, a series of protected lands around the GTA. It has identified 15 parcels of lands that could potentially be opened up for development, but who owns these lands and who stands to benefit in their change of status? Star reporters Noor Javed and Brendan Kennedy and Emma McIntosh from The Narwhal did a joint investigation join us to discuss their findings. This episode was produced by Alexis Green, Paulo Marques and Raju Mudhar.
A proposed bill by the Ontario government is poised to open up the province's Greenbelt, an area established for farmland and environmental protection, to urban development. Peggy Brekveld of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture speaks to what this decision could mean for Ontario farmers, and local food production. Wayne Caldwell with the University of Guelph discusses what Bill 23 means for land use planning and if the strategy can meet the province's housing needs. Plus, Manitoba Co-operator reporter Geralyn Wichers speaks with Naomi Johnson with the Canadian Foodgrains Bank about what it was like to attend the COP27 climate change conference. Hosted by Kristy Nudds.
Guest: Tess Kalinowski, real estate reporter The Ontario government's new housing bill is a massive piece of legislation that changes many of the rules and established practices for development in this province. While there is everything from removing development charges to changing planning and zoning rules to stripping powers from environmental agencies, many are concerned there aren't enough provisions to create affordable housing. The government says its necessary to solve the housing crisis. This episode was produced by Alexis Green, Paulo Marques and Raju Mudhar. Audio sources: Legislative Assembly of Ontario
The world's largest greenbelt now has a target squarely on its fertile soil. The Government of Ontario has tabled Bill 23, which will weaken crucial environmental protection and remove public consultation before development. The new law effectively strips taxpayer's rights as community members will no longer be allowed to participate in development decisions that affect their neighborhoods, local farms and natural areas. "It is very clear there is no valid public interest justification for expanding beyond the land we have already allocated for growth with our existing boundaries. This makes sense only for turning multi-millionaires into multi-billionaires" says Phil Pothen, Ontario Environment Program Manager at Environmental Defence. Join me to learn more about Bill 23 and why it could have a disastrous impact on the future of Ontario.

Nathaniel Erskine-Smith, Liberal MP for Beaches-East York, joined Greg to discuss the tentative education settlement and the Greenbelt development.
The Ontario government releases its Fall Economic Statement - a mini-budget of sorts - so a quick assessment on whether the government is putting money where its mouth seems warranted. Then, the government flip-flops on back-to-work legislation and almost flip-flops on mask mandates. Finally, a look at whether the promise of more housing requires revising Ontario's Greenbelt.

This is the first episode in a weeklong collaboration between The Big Story and The Narwhal, an award-winning non-profit publication that provides in-depth coverage of climate issues across Canada.Ontario Premier Doug Ford just broke his promise to not open up the protected Greenbelt to development. And that's only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to bleak news these days for the province's environmental protections: conservation authorities are being gutted, flood-mitigating wetlands are at risk and citizens are losing their voice at the table. Plus, cities that don't want sprawl are being ordered to grow beyond their boundaries. So what's driving Ford's decision-making? In a word: housing.GUEST: Emma McIntosh, Ontario reporter at The NarwhalRead Emma's Greenbelt coverage hereRead Fatima's coverage of Doug Ford's sprawl policies hereRead Emma and Fatima's coverage of Ontario Conservation Authorities here, and their writing on Doug Ford's overhaul of environmental protections here
Terms like post-evangelical and exvangelical have become increasingly prominent in recent years. I spoke about this in detail with David Gushee a few episodes back. But todays guest actually wrote a book called ‘the post evangelical'…almost 30 years ago, in 1995.So Dave Tomlinson is not new to this conversation and in many ways he is a wonderful guide to those of us seeking a renewed and renovated faith that takes the modern world seriously and stands the test of time. Dave is a vicar from London, a wonderful storyteller and truth seeker and has written many books including ‘how to be a bad Christian and a better human being' which we discuss in this conversation.Simon Buckingham Shum who is a part of meeting ground church joined me to co-host this one - as a Brit who has been following Dave's work for a long time. Simon and Dave make reference a few times to Greenbelt, which is an annual festival in the UK bringing together faith, justice, philosophy, art and a shared space for people from all walks of life. There's a link in the shownotes if you want to learn more. At the end of the conversation Dave gives one of the best definitions of hope I've ever heard.This was a delightful conversation to have and I hope it encourages you.Listen to Dave's talks at Greenbelt here: https://www.greenbelt.org.uk/talks-archive/#~tomlinsonCheck out Dave's YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpGqunuXebtPE1SaSlVjsdA
Guest: Noor Javed, staff reporter Building on Ontario's Greenbelt has long been a hot-button political issue in this province, and one that many politicians have stayed away from. Now, citing the need for new housing, the Ontario government has backtracked on promises not to develop on it and proposed a land swap that could open up 15 areas and thousands of acres to new development. Advocates are concerned these moves could have damaging consequences to the environment and contribute to more urban sprawl, while the government says millions of people are moving to Ontario over the next decade and need a place to live. This episode was produced by Brian Bradley, Paulo Marques and Raju Mudhar. Audio sources: Global News, Ontario Proud

Ontario's More Houses Built Faster Act will overhaul everything from municipal planning to development charges. It's in addition to moves that open the Greenbelt for housing developments, and the granting of new strong mayor powers.

For insight, we welcome:Ene Underwood, CEO at Habitat for Humanity Greater Toronto Area; Mazyar Mortazavi, president and CEO of TAS, an urban development company; Shoshanna Saxe, assistant professor of Civil Engineering and Canada Research Chair in Sustainable Infrastructure at the University of Toronto; and Jacob Dawang, data scientist and a member of the advocacy group More Neighbours Toronto.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Under the guise of solving the housing crisis, Ontario’s premier Doug Ford is moving to develop over 7,000 acres of prime agriculture land in the province’s Greenbelt around the city of Toronto. In exchange, the Ford government says it will set aside over 9,000 acres…somewhere else. MPP for Temiskaming-Cochrane, John Vanthof says the premier’s plan... Read More
The Ford government has turned back on its promise not to touch the protected Greenbelt lands, announcing that it would open up 7,400 acres for new housing so developers can build 50,000 homes on that land. In exchange, it would add 9,400 acres in different areas to the existing two-million-acre swath of agricultural, wetlands and environmentally sensitive land, the province said on Friday afternoon. Matti Siemiatycki, Professor in the Department of Geography and Planning at the University of Toronto's School of Cities, and Canada Research Chair in Infrastructure Planning and Finance, spoke with Alex about this broken promise and what it means for the Greenbelt going forward.

Running 12500km from the Arctic Circle to the borders of Greece, the European Greenbelt is one of the most ambitious conservation schemes ever devised. The idea was to use the no man's land of the Iron Curtain that divided Communist East from Capitalist West as a wildlife corridor to allow rare and endangered species to travel unimpeded across the continent. On the 20th anniversary of the Greenbelt, the writer and anthropologist, Mary-Ann Ochota takes to the road, from the industrialised peat bogs of Finland through the Baltic states and Germany's dying forests to the peasant farms of the southern Balkans. The wildlife of these borderlands is rich and varied but the conservationists feel that they're battling forces bigger than those that created the Iron Curtain in the first place.
