TORONTO – Doug Ford is reversing a plan to open a large protected green space around the Toronto region to housing development if elected premier this spring.

The Progressive Conservative leader says he has heard from people asking him not to touch the Greenbelt since outlining his development pledge yesterday.

He now says a Tory government would maintain the Greenbelt in its entirety.

Earlier today, Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne called Ford's Greenbelt-development plan a "wrongheaded" move that would make the map of the protected area look like "Swiss cheese."
