CHALK BANNER PROTEST

Local environmental activists roamed the downtown core last night, leaving behind chalk banners on the pavement urging pedestrians to "Save the Moraine'' and "Say No To Urban Sprawl." They aimed to raise public awareness about the danger the Oak Ridges Moraine faces if developers are allowed to proceed with plans for housing subdivisions on the environmentally sensitive land. The Earthroots activists targeted high-traffic areas like the Eaton Centre, the Annex, College Park and Queen St. A provincial panel report is to be released this week.
