Transit on Sheppard Avenue

The Henry Farm Executive is taking action to Build Subways and Not LRT'S on Sheppard Avenue as a member of Sheppard Subway Action Coalition. 

To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario:
Whereas the Provincial agency Metrolinx has announced plans to build the Sheppard East surface “Light Rail Transit” as part of their “Big Move” initiative, and
Whereas the existing Sheppard subway line was always intended to be the first phase of a full-length underground line, and
Whereas substantial new highrise residential development is now being built along the Sheppard corridor, adding thousands of extra cars on the streets, and
Whereas a surface “LRT” will reduce the number of traffic lanes on Sheppard, will eliminate left-hand turns between major intersections, will substantially increase already lengthy commute times and will foster car infiltration into stable neighborhoods, and
Whereas a surface “LRT” is strongly opposed by the majority of the residents living in the area,
WE the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as follows:
 To direct Metrolinx to abandon their plan to build a surface “LRT” along Sheppard and instead to extend the existing Sheppard underground subway line East of Don Mills.
