Toronto and Region Conservation board members rejected a plan that calls for a light rail line through Meadowland Park, north of Nanwood Drive, because of the potential negative impact on lands deemed environmentally sensitive.

From the article:

“Sound planning, based on evidence and facts prevailed today,” said Andrew deGroot, co-founder of local advocacy group OneBrampton.

At a meeting of [TRCA] board of directors, members voted unanimously against one of three routes being proposed as alternatives to the controversial Main Street line, north of Steeles Avenue, that Brampton council voted down last October …

“One Brampton welcomes the TRCA board’s decision today to unanimously reject the proposed LRT route through the Etobicoke Creek Valley, whether a surface route, elevated route or tunnel,” deGroot said.
