Forest vs. Highway: The eternal Canadian battle

In today’s Big Story podcast, the forest in question this time is a piece of land known as the Greenbelt. The highway, if it’s built, would be known as Hwy. 413. If you think this is just a story about Toronto—you’re wrong.

The fight over Hwy. 413 has arrived at the federal government’s level. And how the government chooses to use the powers it has in this situation will decide the project’s fate. And quite possibly the fate of the next big highway vs. forest battle.
