AGAINST THE METROLINX PLAN TO BUILD SURFACE LRT ALONG SHEPPARD AVE, EAST

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   neighbourhoods, 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.
