proposed mid-peninsula highway is a serious threat to natural and
agricultural areas along its entire length.
will promote urban sprawl in an area already faced with the many
pressures of a growing population. In a post-Walkerton Ontario,
it threatens to contaminate our groundwater.
highway is not a laughing matter, as suggested by the writer's tongue-in-cheek/flippant
comments in this article: "... They (Romans) killed obstreperous
locals and didn't worry about environmental assessments. For better
or worse, things are done differently in Ontario ..."
irreverent comments mar an otherwise informative piece that goes
a long way towards enlightening Spectator readers regarding the
threats and realities posed by the mid-pen.
