As I’ve mentioned in previous columns, transportation is one of the most important issues affecting the people in Etobicoke Centre.
If passed, the Getting Ontario Moving Act — which was introduced in the legislature earlier this month — will keep our roads safe, protect front-line workers, schoolchildren, and motorcyclists, upload authority for new subway projects to the province, cut red tape for our province’s job creators and help make sure that Ontario’s roads remain among the safest in North America.
Recently, Premier Doug Ford, Minister of Transportation Jeff Yurek, Minister of Infrastructure Monte McNaughton, PA Stephen Lecce and myself, unveiled the new Transportation Plan at the GO Maintenance Facility in Etobicoke-Lakeshore. Together, our government announced our $28.5-billion plan to get Ontario moving. This is by far the most money ever invested to get shovels in the ground and get new subways built.
