"I encourage the government to move forward to take the bold and wise step to expand the Greenbelt; a major step forward to ensure the viability of farms and farmers as well as food security in this province.

Organizations that have worked with the government, to this end, must applaud this positive announcement and should commit to continuing support of healthy agricultural systems."
