Aurora can gain in transportation talks

December 21, 2015   ·   0 Comments

The shortened Environmental Assessment process makes early submissions very necessary.
There is a lot in this for Aurora. Premier Wynne talks about “decarbonizing” transportation and that is commendable, but that can only happen if we are given inviting alternatives: to get our butts out of the cars.
Highland Gate represents one of those huge opportunities that is still in limbo; the rail line widening is yet another one. Just like with the Leslie Street and St John’s Sideroad widenings, these major projects are the low-cost chances to make real progress – on the ground!
And we are fortunate to have the formal planning in place, in the Aurora Trails Master Plan.
So with Premier Wynne solidly advocating from the upper level of government, and Aurora from the lower level, how can Metrolinx say no?
