    I purchased approximately 40 acres of land in 1986,with a small house, a workshop / garage with a creek running through the eastern edge. The owner/s wife was living in the house & her sons were operating a scrap yard & less than 10 acres was rented out for a cash crop ( beans ).

    We cleaned out the 100 + vehicles & have been good stewards of the land. Each year the MNR sends us a notice indicating that we are eligible for a tax rebate of $50 if we agree to protect 6 acres of land adjacent to the creek.
    THE PRICE WE PAY:

    We have not altered the area along the creek for the past 30 years. In 2002 with the Oak Ridge Moraine Act, we are being told the 40 acres are now considered conservation lands & restrictive covenants have been placed on the property.

    MNR has advised that only 3 people are employed in the CLTIP & legislation would have to be enacted to include the lands identified in the ORMA in the rebate program & have this information included on the property tax bills.

    OUR FAMILY IS SCHEDULED TO HAVE OUR SAY AT OUR OMB HEARING IN EARLY MAY.

    IF YOU OWN ANY PROPERTY, YOU COULD BE NEXT
