Toronto | Traditional territories of the Huron-Wendat, the Anishnaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Chippewas and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation – Lana Goldberg, Ontario Climate Program Manager and Phil Pothen, Ontario Environment Program Manager, experts on Ontario environmental policy from Environmental Defence are available to provide their insights into the Ontario government’s recently released transportation infrastructure plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe . 

This report is disappointing and would lock Ontario into car-dependent sprawl and traffic congestion for the next 30 years. Rather than offering modern transportation solutions, this government is proposing to build out-of-date mega highways which will destroy forests, farmland, and wetlands, while increasing the province’s carbon emissions. Ontario can and must do better.
