The City of Burlington and the Region of Halton have been adamant in opposition to any plans to build a new highway across the Niagara escarpment. The community has been equally active through the STOP Escarpment Highway Coalition.
Despite political promises made, the provincial Environmental Assessment for this plan still includes a possible route across the escarpment to the dismay and disappointment of all.
The Stop the Escarpment Highway Coalition has put together a video on why we need to prevent the development of a major highway across the Niagara Escarpment in North Burlington.
The Stop the Escarpment Highway Coalition will be hosting a show on TVCOGECO on channel 700 on October 4, from 7-9 p.m. I will be participating in this program, along with other local representatives including Regional Chair Gary Carr and Ward 3 Councillor John Taylor.
The City and Region will be hosting a public meeting about the proposed Niagara to GTA corridor highway on October 23 from 7-9 p.m. at Mainway Arena. I encourage all members of the community who have concerns about a potential highway in North Burlington to attend.
For more information about the NGTA corridor highway I have tagged several updates and news under “Niagara-GTA Highway” on my blog including news, updates and background.
Please leave a comment, and share your thoughts with me on this important issue for our city.
