As a the leader of Progressive Conservative Party, Doug Ford supported the right of communities to approve new landfill sites. As Premier, he has repeated his support:
"Who are a bunch of politicians in Queens Park to tell municipalities how to run their municipality, it is up to them, they have an option, to opt in, or opt out, that is up to them, it is not necessarily up to us to overrule a municipality that is the last thing I would want to do. I don't care if someone says they have 300 or 400 jobs, we are not going to stick something in an area that people don't want."
The Demand the Right Coalition has seen the Ministry of the Environment move ever closer to creating this right ... but as it stands today, no concrete legislation has been proposed or introduced.
