Halton mayors head to Ottawa to oppose CN truck-rail hub in Milton

 

The leaders of the Halton Municipalities are in Ottawa Tuesday to meet with the Federal Government and refuse approval of CN’s proposed truck-rail hub in Milton.

The mayors say they’re protecting the health of Halton residents.

The Federal Review Panel assessing the proposal recently reached the unprecedented conclusion that the project is likely to cause significant effects on human health that cannot be mitigated,” according to the joint official release.

Milton Mayor Gord Krantz, Burlington Mayor Marianne Meed Ward, Halton Hills Mayor Rick Bonnette, and Oakville Mayor Rob Burton will meet with the Prime Minister’s Office, as well as The Honourable Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport, to voice their strong concerns about the location of CN’s proposed truck-rail hub in Milton and request that the Federal Government refuse approval of CN’s proposal.

Milton MP Adam van Koeverden will also be in attendance to show his strong support for the Halton Municipalities and his position on this issue.

The media conference will be live-streamed at 11:30 a.m. through Facebook and can be accessed at halton.ca/cn.
