City altered original LRT route as costs inflate
•Bridge over Prince's Island Park (vs. underground)
•Above ground through Centre Street North
Timeline for consultation too short (~10 weeks until vote)
•No detailed plans & engineering
•Inadequate consultation with stakeholders
Will impact generations to come
•Destruction of Prince's Island Park
•Safety concern (EMS access, crossings, etc.)
•City is writing a blank cheque to fund overruns
•Expropriation of homes
Key Objectives & Desired Outcomes:
Construct the Green Line... THE RIGHT WAY!
•Green Line should ultimately be constructed, but…
•One chance to do it the right way – do it underground
If we cannot do it the right way now, we should wait
•Construct once we have the resources to do so
•More time will benefit all involved
•Less risk of negative outcomes & cost overruns
Revert back to original below surface alignment
•Preserves the park and wetlands
•Meets broader stakeholder objectives
Preserve Prince's Island Park! Quality of Life & Community in and around the park will be adversely affected!
KEEP THE GREENLINE UNDERGROUND!!!
