About us

Beginning in 2009, a number of those concerned with the NCC–led Study Team’s approach to the Interprovincial Crossings Study began working together. Although we are from different communities extending from the downtown core to Orléans, we found common ground around the observation that none of the proposed bridge corridors would provide an acceptable solution to the thousands of inter-provincial heavy trucks transiting through residential areas. Furthermore, the NCC was not responding to our requests to study alternatives that held promise to provide a better solution to this truck problem. Eventually we adopted the name “Sustainable Solutions/Solutions durables” (SSD).

Our position is that this status quo is unacceptable and a solution to this downtown truck problem must be found.
