Protecting our Escarpment from a New Provincial Highway – Video

Since 2003, Halton Region and the City of Burlington have been advocating against a new Provincial highway that would cut through the escarpment in North Burlington.

Halton Regional Council unanimously opposes a new highway crossing the Niagara Escarpment and is working with the City of Burlington and residents to ensure our voices are heard at the Provincial level.
