Stop the destructive Highway 413

The Ontario government is trying to fast-track approval for a new mega-highway, Highway 413, that would pave over important farmland, forests, rivers, and a section of the Greenbelt in the GTHA.

Back in 2018 this same project was cancelled by the province because it would cost billions of dollars and do massive environmental damage, while saving drivers just 30 seconds off their commute.

But now it’s back. And it will mean more cars, more air pollution, and more carbon emissions.

Ontario doesn’t need a new mega-highway. We need better GO service, better cycling and transit, and more support for transportation options that will help Ontario fight climate change, protect green spaces and reduce air pollution.

Sign the petition to tell Ontario you don’t want the destructive Highway 413.


Your letter will go to: Caroline Mulroney, Ontario Minister ofTransportation; David Piccini, Minister of Environment, Conservation and Parks; your local MPP.
