Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

A "representative" of the Toronto Real Estate Board called a farmer that recently sold property.  She knew the name of the buyer, location and value of the transaction.  What she wanted to know was the physical description of the property, i.e. acres of bush-lot.   (the name on the phone indicated a private person)

Asked why the Toronto Real Estate Board was interested in farmland 2 hours outside Toronto, she said that no one else was collecting that kind of information for farmland in Ontario.

Asked again why the Toronto Real Estate Board was interested in farmland outside the GTA, she said it was information gathering. (the farmer said the information was confidential and did not participate in the information gathering)

There was no offer of compensation for providing the confidential information either.

Why is anyone interested in collecting descriptive data of woodlots, ravines, gullies on private farmland in Ontario... now?
