The Haudenosaunee nations plan environmental assessments starting Sept. 20 on the Hamilton to Toronto GO line.
Aug. 24, 2022
A First Nations group is warning that GO transit service may be disrupted this fall as it conducts environmental assessments along some rail lines in the GTA operated by Metrolinx.
The Haudenosaunee Development Institute, which represents the Haudenosaunee nations living in southern Ontario, said beginning Sept. 20 it is planning to conduct its own environmental assessments to understand “how Metrolinx operations are impacting recognized treaty rights.”
While the group says it is not looking for a confrontation, it recognizes that the assessments “will necessarily cause delays to Metrolinx services,” which it hopes to minimize. Assessments will start on the GO train line from Toronto to Hamilton.
