An Internet Petition.
To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario
We, the undersigned residents of Ontario, petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to refrain from cutting down trees in the Meadowvale Station Woods and from the woodland SW of 401/403 interchange, both in Mississauga.
We petition the Assembly to save these environmentally sensitive areas by halting the 401 Improvements project from Highway 410/403 Interchange to the Credit River and to use the projected $180 million cost of the project to find better alternatives to the increased gridlock the project would create.
Lasting solutions like improved mass public transportation and incentives to work close to home will provide greater returns. This is a test of your government's Greenbelt protection policies which put nature first.
Sincerely, Click Here
