Laudato Si’ - Lines of Approach and Action 3

182. 188. An assessment of the environmental impact of business ventures and projects demands transparent political processes involving a free exchange of views.... I am concerned to encourage an honest and open debate so that particular interests or ideologies will not prejudice the common good.


Where have you seen business interests taking precedence over the common good? For example, in 2023, Ontario’s Auditor General revealed that when Doug Ford, Ontario’s Premier, removed land from the protected Greenbelt areas, it unjustly favored certain developers. 


Thank and / or pray for those who ensure that government actions are transparent, fair, and for the common good.
