The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency and the Canadian Transportation Agency are hosting joint information sessions on the proposed Milton Logistics Hub Project.  The information sessions will give members of the public and opportunity to learn about the review panel process and upcoming public participation opportunities, as well as to ask questions of federal representatives.

“Town of Milton and Halton Region have serious concerns that the selected location in Milton is not appropriate and we will continue to be active participants through this process,” said Milton Mayor Gord Krantz. “I would encourage residents to stay informed and engaged and have their voices heard.”

Information session details:

  • Wednesday, October 26, 2016, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. – Milton Sports Centre, Banquet Room
  • Thursday, October 27, 2016, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. – Milton Sports Centre, Banquet Room

A presentation will begin at 7:30 p.m., followed by a question and answer session with representatives from both agencies.

The proposed facility was introduced in March, 2015. It would take up 400 acres in an area bounded by Tremaine, Britannia Rd, Lower Base Line, and 25 highway.  It has faced stiff opposition from the Town Milton, Region of Halton, and two citizens groups: Milton RAIL (Residents Affected by Intermodal Lines), and Milton Says No.
