To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario,
Whereas Highway 412 and the planned Highway 418 are community highways that are primarily used for local traffic travelling to and from Durham Region; and,
Whereas Highway 412 and the planned Highway 418 are the only North-South 400 series Highways in the entire Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area that are tolled; and,
Whereas tolls on the 412 have left the Highway underutilized, resulting in additional congestion across residential roadsways in the Region; and,
Whereas residents in Durham Region have been advocating for the removal of these unfair tolls since their introduction.
We the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as follows: Support Bill 43 to remove the tolls from the 412 Highway and protect the planned 418 Highway from any future tolls.
