The story of drive-thrus in our urban and rural lives is a brief but potent one.

This site introduces you to the issue of drive-thrus in Canada, their impact on our lives and the rationale behind having a moratorium on them in our culture and our city planning. Too much of our lives are wasted in cars. Using drive-thrus only accelerate this waste. Research repeatedly clearly establishes that in an age of rising gas prices, sitting idling in a line-up for fast food or cash at a bank is just foolish.

Drive-thrus are just the tip of the iceberg for an unsustainable lifestyle. By supporting our opposition to new drive-thrus and by helping us develop recommendations that we can take to municipalities across Canada, you will be helping us mature to a new level of responsibility and sustainability.
