Harvest Ontario Walk (H.O.W.) Saturday, October 1, 2022

CCKT in partnership with Climate Action King (CAK) will be participating in the Harvest Ontario Walk in advocating for the protection of Greenbelt farmland, and natural heritage areas (wetlands, river valleys, forests, etc.), supporting a full Federal Impact Assessment on the proposed 60 km long Highway 413.

CCKT and CAK members are invited to join in a walk along a short section of the King-Vaughan Town Line which is very close to the proposed route of Highway 413.  We will meet at the intersection of Mill Road and the King-Vaughan Town Line between 10:45 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.  Come dressed for walking and for the weather.  Please carpool if possible.

The walk begins at 11:00 a.m. when we will proceed westwards on the King-Vaughan Town Line through a rural area which includes farms, forested lands and rural homes.  We will cross the East Humber River where we will rest for a short time.  At this point, we will turn around and walk eastwards on the K-V Town Line and return to our cars.  The total distance covered will be about 3.5 km.  For those preferring a shorter walk, there will be a car available for shuttling people back to their cars.

For those interested, there will be a large rally at the Brampton Fairgrounds (Heart Lake and Old School Road) between 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. with 100’s of individuals and members of other organizations who will be walking other sections of the proposed Highway 413 route before the rally.  Mike Schreiner and other elected provincial officials will be speaking at the rally.  In addition there will be a Farmer’s Market and Music beginning at 11:30 a.m. at the Fairgrounds.
