Sprawl, Tall, or Infill – Are These Really Our Only Choices?

FUN AGM Presentation – Saturday, June 18, 2022

Guest Speaker: Graham Churchill, Executive Director, A Better Richmond Hill

With the Ontario government expecting the GTA to grow by an additional 2.9M people in the next 25 years, we need a sensible growth plan. The politicians aren’t doing it so citizen groups need to come together to create one. Graham Churchill has a plan, and he’s looking for like-minded community groups to help refine it.

Graham Churchill is Executive Director for A Better Richmond Hill, a non-profit group formed in 2020 to clean up dirty politics in Richmond Hill. Graham has been leading the fight to prevent the “Transit Oriented Community” development at Yonge Street and Highway 407 in Richmond Hill, and now, since the EMZO (Enhanced Minister’s Zoning Order) was issued on April 14, 2022, to overturn it. Under the Ford government’s plan this location would become the second densest housing centre in the world after the Dharavi slums of Mumbai!
