I have heard news that makes homesteading in Ontario more difficult. First wood stoves. I heat with wood and my house insurance is at a premium to prove it. I talked to guy this week with no house insurance because the company wanted him to remove his wood cookstove. Also I have heard one community in Ontario is thinking of putting water meters on private wells. They want to make sure the rural people pay for their water. Soon I can see an O2 meter so they can tax breathing. I can see an end to the homesteading lifestyle in the next generation. Becauise the average homesteader won't be able to afford it. So much for a 'free' country.
