Highway plans will exacerbate climate crisis
Return to building sprawl, Nov. 25
Having moved to Ontario just eight years ago, I was unaware of the history of Mike Harris’s premiership, in particular the roadmap designed 25 years ago that is oddly similar to Ford’s current proposal.
That subsequent governments rejected those plans for urban sprawl in favour of protecting sensitive lands shows how wisdom prevails over the interests of developers and speculators.
It is sad to see the return of those destructive plans so many years later in shameful disregard for the future of our communities.
Ford’s revived Harris plan for Highway 413 and the Bradford Pass are an insult to our intelligence, and, worse, an insult to the environment.
