On March 26, 2019, Doug Downey, MPP (Barrie—Springwater—Oro-Medonte) and then Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Finance (currently AG), filed his Private Member’s Bill for first reading in the Legislature.  Bill 88 proposed several changes to the Planning Act, which FOLA enthusiastically supported.

While the Bill died following Doug’s appointment to AG, FOLA is hopeful that it will be reintroduced as a Government Bill in the near future.
