Doug Ford has privately assured developers he will "open a big chunk" of protected land in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area to housing if the Progressive Conservatives win the June 7 election.

In a video recorded Feb. 12 and shared with the media Monday by the governing Liberals, Ford said the 800,000-hectare swath of environmentally sensitive and agricultural land known as the Greenbelt is "just farmer fields."

"It's right beside a community. We need to open that up and create a larger supply," he said, noting that will lead to "price drops" in housing in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.
