City’s Proposed LRT Maintenance Yard is All Wet

Proposed Bowesville Site is a Wetland Protected By Federal Law from Development.

Our friends at Save Our Greenspace have studiously compiled evidence and expert opinion that proves the City’s misguided choice of a maintenance yard for their proposed LRT is located on a wetland. Not only this, the wetland contains both flora and fauna that would be illegal to disturb. Completing the case, the land is owned by the Federal government, whose laws forbid development on wetlands.

Will this development be the proverbial “last spike” through the heart of the City’s ill-guided North-South LRT?
