The article reports on the issue of selling Frederick Banting homestead by the Ontario Heritage Society (OHS) to a developer in Ontario. The issue arises when OHS decided to sell the homestead to the developer and preserved only 4 acres. As a heritage designation, the Council imposed to OHS to preserve 70-acres of the property knowing that the 100-acre farm was sold to OHS for $1 in 1999 as a cultural heritage. OHS appealed for this heritage designation to the Ontario Conservation Review Board.
