FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 18, 2023
OTTAWA, ON – John Fraser, MPP for Ottawa South and Interim Leader of the Ontario Liberal Party, has released the following statement:
“It is good news for Ontarians to have the Integrity Commissioner and the Auditor General launch investigations into the government's move to carve up the Greenbelt. The more people looking into this, the better. It just doesn’t smell right, and it has a stench of insider trading.
“Why would someone spend tens of millions of dollars to purchase land that they can do virtually nothing with? Because weeks later, you could.
"The connections between the government and the people who stood to benefit the most are just too close. Ontarians have a right to know if the government gave their friends advance notice of their plans to crack open the Greenbelt.”
