Debated for the decades, the Bradford Bypass is a hot-button issue—yet again—as Ontario voters head to the polls.
On the latest episode of Inside the Village, a news podcast produced by Village Media, Keith Brooks weighs in on the controversial highway proposal. Brooks is the programs director at Environmental Defence, a leading climate advocacy organization.
"We don't support it," Brooks said during the podcast. "I don't think that there is any evidence to support that a highway like that—whether it's the Bradford Bypass or the 413—is going to do anything to alleviate congestion. We know these new roads just get filled up with new cars."
