Another fear mongering petition. Aldgate has put up ALOT of nimby signs at the Markham/Ellesmere intersection 🙄


Well.........they certainly start with the hyperbole meter at 11 on a scale of 1 to 10:

"The proposed Metrolinx Bus Rapid Transit service on Ellesmere Road will destroy our community"

Destroy? Not alter, not affect, not, perhaps, negatively impact.................but destroy............zero credibility for that.

*****

"2. Metrolinx wants to reroute all cars, trucks and transport trucks from Ellesmere to Bellamy and Progress and then dump them onto Markham Rd. "

I'm going to have to go back and read the underlying studies, I'm not clear on why this would be a proposed truck route; though other than created an extra left-hand turn for eastbound traffic I'm not sure why it would be a terrible burden if true.

***

7. It is time to plan the future of transit and the proper movement of vehicles within the city without trying to limit the use of cars and trucks......

Sounds a bit like 'Have our cake and eat it too', to me


*****

Interesting to see what they control..............just over 14 acres in the immediate vicinity.

I wonder if it has remotely occurred to them to discuss w/the City how they see the planning for the future of these sites.

None of this is really 'heavy' industry.

I could see that corner site going residential and/or commercial at height at a material premium.
