Commuters turning to zombies throughout Toronto region: video Experts fear congestion could lead to full-scale “gridlockalypse”
Video footage released today by the Pembina Institute suggests there are zombies commuting in the greater Toronto region. The video shows the zombies waiting for the bus for up to 45 minutes in communities underserved by transit, while others appear to be trapped in gridlock on the region’s congested highways.
The Oil Sands Environmental Coalition (OSEC) — comprised of the Pembina Institute, the Alberta Wilderness Association and the Fort McMurray Environmental Association, and represented by Ecojustice — will present evidence this week that clearly demonstrates that the Shell Jackpine mine expansion is not in the public interest.
With public hearings into a proposed oilsands mine expansion set to begin today, a coalition of environmental groups is calling on the joint federal-provincial review panel to reject the project.
