many others, would like to know how the Ministry of Transportation,
as directed by Norman Sterling, intends to comply with the wishes of
the growing majority of discontented voters in regard to the moratorium
as called for by the Citizens Opposed to Paving the Escarpment (COPE)
on the proposed mid-peninsula highway.
on its Web site (www.cope-nomph.org), COPE has called for a moratorium
on all further planning and assessment of the mid- peninsula highway
until such time as the Smart Growth Panels have reported and the MTO
has demonstrated that it will respect Smart Growth principles -- the
environment, the inputs from stakeholders and the policies of other
levels of government -- when formulating transportation policy and planning.
on the MTO to recognize that a forward-looking and responsible transportation
strategy for the province will encompass rail, transit, marine, improvements
to existing structures and other transport modes as well as new roadways.
it take to get an answer?
