PROPOSED LOCATION IS A BAD CHOICE - COUNTY ROAD 42 SITE HAS:
No Infra-structure (water, sewer, roads, hydro)
No Public Transit
Removes services from core
Is un-accessible to seniors & the under-employed
Makes Active Transportation virtually impossible
Increases Urban Sprawl
Removes Agricultural Land
Constrains Airport growth
Has high Operating expenses by building Out not Up
Will the airport’s radar or electronics disrupt the hospital’s equipment?
Will the Samsung Solar Farm disrupt the Hospital’s equipment?
WARD 8 –Has a BETTER OPTION
(GEMM Property – bound to the west by Jefferson Blvd., East Lauzon Parkway, south Tecumseh Rd and to the north by the CN Rail Corridor)
The Green and Tan areas are vacant lands and depending on who you ask was chosen by Selection Committee as 1st or 2nd Choice for Mega-Hospital Location
I AGREE WE NEED A NEW HOSPITAL - NOT at County 42
Advocates for the poor, for seniors, for the environment,
for public transit and for sustainable development are all opposed.
Yet once again, Council (minus Mr. Bortolin and Mr. Holt) take the side of developers
