Silvio De Gasperis - "I have a package" - Greenbelt steal over

Doug Ford, bowing to crushing pressure that threatens his political career, has announced the Greenbelt fraud was a 'mistake' and will be rolled back. For weeks this man has insulted Canadians and folks in Ontario with the lowest grade horseshit imaginable.
3 builders got 92% of the sites taken out of Ontario's Greenbelt. Silvio De Gasperis, the CEO of TACC Group of Companies, had wanted for decades to develop one of his properties, known as Cherrywood, but it was in the Greenbelt. De Gasperis owned the land in the Duffins Rouge Agricultural Preserve in Pickering prior to the creation of the Greenbelt in 2005. He felt robbed and that it had improperly been made part of the protected area. He took the province to court, but ultimately lost. When Ford won the 2022 election, Silvio De Gasperis looked to Ryan Amato, Clark’s chief of staff. His opening came on Sept. 14, 2022, at a dinner at the Building Industry and Land Development conference. De Gasperis was seated at the same table with Ryan Amato and came with a package that his daughter, director of planning for TACC, prepared.

“I have a package I want you to take a look at — there was an injustice done at Cherrywood and I want you to take a look,” De Gasparis said to Amato. He handed over the envelope and told Amato to reach out to his daughter. Amato said he would take a look. In early October, Amato called Alana De Gasperis seeking more information. She asked if Cherrywood would be removed from the Greenbelt. “The government is looking at everything at this moment and have not made any decisions,” Amato told her. She took that opportunity to tell Amato about three other TACC sites: one in Richmond Hill, another in Vaughan, and one in Hamilton. She heard from Amato on Nov. 3, 2022, when he called her to deliver very profitable news: all four parcels of land were coming out of the Greenbelt.
