Stop Highway 413!

Premier Ford is doing everything he can to bully his way to ramming his destructive Highway 413 megaproject through farms, forests and the Greenbelt. To pave the way, he has rolled back environmental protection rules and forced sprawl on Brampton and Caledon to help his billionaire developer friends. 

Fortunately, the federal government can stop him. They have legal approval authority over threats to federal species at risk, migratory birds, fish, and indigenous consultation. Whenever projects threaten these values, they have responsibility to review with a federal impact assessment.

The Federal Government can and should act to stop the destructive Highway 413.

Without federal oversight, Premier Ford will happily waste 10 billion taxpayer dollars on a 10 lane mega-highway which will cross over 100 creeks and rivers, destroy the best remaining forests in York region, create gridlock and perpetuate expensive climate-destroying sprawl development.

Tell Minister Guilbeault and your local MP to enforce federal laws and stop Highway 413!

Your letter will be sent to the Ministers of the Environment and Natural Resources and your local MP.
