No Xinyi, NO MZO!

Xinyi’s proposed glass plant in Stratford raises many unanswered questions. A comprehensive public examination and debate is urgently required of this proposal.

The proposed factory will remove 175 acres of prime agricultural land from production, increase demand on the aquifer by over 25%, and increase air pollution.

In addition to these environmental concerns, the decision by Stratford Council to request and obtain a Minister’s Zoning Order (MZO) to rezone the land undermines public confidence in the Council’s commitment to public participation in local decision-making.

We are working to protect water, air quality and local democracy.

Prime agricultural land should not be rezoned to heavy industrial status in Ontario.

The Ontario government is increasingly using MZOs to circumvent public participation. This project will draw attention to the democratic deficit created by its overuse.

Ministerial Zoning Orders (MZOs) deny communities their democratic right to public participation in planning decisions shaping their communities.

This initiative will sponsor public education on the importance of preserving prime agricultural land; and the potential risks to water and air quality of the heavy industry proposed for the site.

This initiative will also promote transparent public participation in local decision-making.

The appropriate location for an industry of this type is a brownfield location with access to surface water.
