Gil Penalosa promises to tear down the east Gardiner Expressway!

By Be Aww Girls

If Penalosa is elected as a mayor, He'll torn down expressway to replace it with a ground-level boulevard and thousands of new homes!


Penalosa called the current “hybrid” plan by John Tory - a costly "fiasco."


Penalosa would revert to a plan recommended by city staff - turning the Gardiner east into a boulevard for new community.


There would be space for 8,000 new homes for 15,000 people!

which will generate at least $1 billion in construction savings and will extend east Gardiner commuters’ average time in traffic by a few minutes!

“If we do a boulevard with sidewalks, protected bikeways, trees, benches … we’re going to have less cost, some money (saved), some revenue and a better project..."

"…The Gardiner fiasco is the symbol of irresponsible spending that we must stop in order to create a Toronto for everyone.” Gil said.
