Wynne Liberal decision to cancel GTA West Corridor a waste of money

Published on February 09, 2018

Today, the Ontario PCs condemned the news of the Wynne Liberals’ cancellation of the Environmental Assessment of the GTA West Corridor.

“The GTA West has been studied by the ministry for nearly a decade. Internal government documents, obtained by my office, reveal that the ministry has spent over $14 million studying the corridor, with zero results,” said Ontario PC Deputy Leader and Dufferin-Caledon MPP Sylvia Jones.

“Kathleen Wynne’s decision is disappointing. The Ontario PCs believe that the GTA West Corridor is a project that deserves a complete environmental study. Congestion will cost the GTA $7 billion a year by 2031, according to Metrolinx,” added Jones.

“People are spending more time in their cars stuck in traffic and less time with their families. There is a massive infrastructure deficit in Ontario, and this amounts to yet another disappointing broken promise from the Wynne Liberals,” said Ontario PC Transportation Critic Michael Harris.

“It’s clear that the Wynne Liberals are untrustworthy – this is just another example.”
