Join the Greenbelt NOT Asphalt Day of Action

The Ontario government is planning two new highways through Ontario's precious farmland and Greenbelt - Highway 413 and the Holland Marsh Highway (Bradford Bypass).

 

If built, these highways would pave over farms, forests, wetlands and a portion of the Greenbelt. They will also cost taxpayers upwards of $6-10 Billion. Highway 413 alone would also add over 17 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, at a time when cutting emissions is more urgent than ever.

 

Enough is enough. We need to show the province that Ontarians do not want more megahighways – we want to preserve our natural areas, grow and eat local produce, and invest in effective public transit and livable, walkable communities.

 

On Saturday, November 13th, Ontarians from across the region will hold rallies and events to tell the provincial government what we want: "Greenbelt NOT Asphalt."
