The Greater Toronto Area (GTA) is getting a new 400-series highway and transit corridor across York, Peel and Halton regions, but not everyone is on board with the provincial government's preferred route.
"The GTA West Corridor will help alleviate traffic congestion and improve the movement of people and goods across the province," said Minister of Transportation Caroline Mulroney in a statement.
But Environmental Defence, a Canadian advocacy organization that works with government, industry and individuals to defend the environment, says otherwise.
"Ontario does not need another 400-series highway. This destructive plan will destroy communities, damage the environment, and deliver essentially no benefit to commuters."
