Yep, parts of it were including what became the 407 and the protected ROW for the future transitway. IIRC the protected lands were relatively narrow in this area compared to some others. I had the (mis)fortune of dealing with that Plan for a year or so back in 2015, including mundane things like Provincial approval for people to build a garage...
