If you care about the environment, then you should let the Ontario government know that you are opposed to their plan to build Highway 413.
Here are the facts. Highway 413 will cost billions in taxpayer's money to build. It will be both a financial and an environmental disaster for the province. It will pave over the Greenbelt, contaminate waterways and destroy valuable farmland. It will also ruin the treasured archeological sites of the Huron-Wendat people.
This is not the kind of Ontario that puts people and the environment first, ahead of cars and wealthy developers. It should also be noted that the proposed highway will save drivers about 30 seconds a trip. Is that worth the destruction of the Greenbelt?
As Joni Mitchell sang, "Don't it always seem to go, you don't know what you've got 'til its gone. They paved paradise and put up a parking lot.,"
Look how Toronto's view of Lake Ontario has been blocked by condominium after condominium surrounding the lake. Don't let the Progressive? Conservative government of Ontario do the same to the Green Belt.
Premier Doug Ford is trying to win the next Ontario election by appealing to the greed of some developers. He is trying to woo drivers with the promise of new highways. Don't let it happen. Flood your MPPS with the message to stop Highway 413. Ford may change his mind if he thinks Highway 413 will cost him the election next year. It's the only way to reach him.

Democracy is precious, so let your voice be heard.
