Does John Tory Support Sprawl?
14/10/2005

I'm just asking because he was out in Brampton last week, complaining that the McGuinty government is too slow in building the Highway 410 extension.

If you take a look at the Google Satellite map for the extension area, it looks like it's mostly an extension into the fringe areas ripe for new subdivisions (but currently greenfields). (A PDF map of the extension is here.)

Should this project really be a priority?

(Of course the local MPP and the Liberal Minister of Transportation also support the project, and probably all three major parties. I don't know if anyone is taking sprawl seriously.)
