6. Map: Toronto's Big Pit

Over the next 25 years the GTA will consume enough stone, sand, and
gravel to disturb land equal to this 60 foot (20 metre) deep hole from
Toronto's Bloor Street to the waterfront between Greenwood Avenue and
The Kingsway, about 35km2.

This amount of land will be destroyed in the countryside surrounding
the GTA if municipalities do not start practicing the 3Rs with gravel.
