Cutting down trees for new transit line raises alarms

Metrolinx says building Ontario line requires removing nearly 2,800 trees in Don Valley

Metrolinx is beginning the removal of trees in the Don Valley area to make way for construction of the Ontario Line.

However, the cutting of trees is raising new questions in the community about the company’s plans.

Toronto-Danforth MPP Peter Tabuns said people understand more transit is needed in Toronto and that will cause some disruption.

“However, I think it is critical for anybody developing that transit to minimize damage and to consult with the community to reduce conflict and get the best solution,” Tabuns said. “I don’t believe that the consultation needed has been carried out and I am shocked by the scale of tree removal.”
