MidlandToday welcomes letters to the editor at andrew@midlandtoday.ca. Please include your daytime phone number and address (for verification of authorship, not publication). The following letter is in response to a letter entitled Bradford Bypass will harm wildlife, wetlands, published July 7.
********************

I wonder if the letter writer (who lives in Whitchurch Stouffville) has ever tried to get from Keswick to Innisfil?

The salt runoff the letter writer mentions is already affecting Soldiers Bay and the rivers that run through the Holland Marsh.

Not to mention the emissions from all the exhaust that is currently affecting the residents along Leslie Street, Queensville Sideroad, Bathurst Street and the main thoroughfare of downtown Bradford. How many trucks and cars travel that route daily? 

I've lived in East Gwillimbury since 1985 and this bypass was being investigated even before then.

The bypass would cut off an hour of drive time.
