Farmland Under Threat Still?

The recent amendment to the Growth plan continues to raise concerns about farmland protection in Ontario. This is from Ontario Farmland Trust:

"The proposed Growth Plan Amendment 1 is yet another threat to farmland and could diminish many of the gains made during the Plan’s 2017 update.

Some of the proposed changes include: reducing the Growth Plan’s intensification and density targets, simplified processes to apply for even lower targets than those within the Plan, and allowing settlement expansions of up to 40 hectares to occur outside of a Municipal Comprehensive Review. These are all changes that could open the door for farmland loss and urban sprawl."
