Burlington closes road ahead of salamander migration
The city of Burlington is getting ready for the annual trek of the endangered Jefferson salamander.
The city will be temporarily closing King Road starting today to allow for the safe passage of the amphibians during their breeding season.
Burlington has been closing the same road for about three weeks a year since 2012, in order to help the salamanders safely reach ponds along the Niagara escarpment.
York Region is also pitching in to help, and has built a series of tunnels under roads to help increase the survival of the rare amphibian.
No, there have not been 18 school shootings since the beginning of the year. We need to have the gun control discussion, but we need to use only the real stats to do it.
