Doug Ford bulldozing his way across Ontario

April 30, 2024

KITCHENER — Ontario Greens Deputy Leader Aislinn Clancy released the following statement in response to news that the Ford government is planning to begin construction on Highway 413 in 2025.

“Highway 413 is an environmental wrecking ball that’s going to pave over 2,000 acres of prime farmland, including 400 acres of the Greenbelt – all to save commuters a mere 30 seconds.

Notably missing from today’s announcement was a clear answer on how many taxpayer dollars are going to be spent to build this sprawl supercharger – estimated to be at least $10 billion.

If the Greenbelt scandal has taught us anything, it’s to not trust Ford government deals that line the pockets of wealthy landowners.

Ontario Greens will keep fighting to stop Highway 413 and put forward real housing solutions that protect our farms, forests and wetlands from costly sprawl.”
