Billed as a roadmap to making Ontario a “world leader in the safe, efficient and sustainable transportation of people and goods,” the Ford government has released a discussion paper outlining potential megaprojects that could stretch across the Greater Golden Horseshoe as part of a 30-year transportation plan. However, the lofty 34-page document, which contains proposals aimed at improving commutes for residents and the movement of goods such as massive highway corridor expansions and a huge extension of the Ontario Line subway line in Toronto by 2051, fell short on specifics and costs. “Two-thirds of Ontario’s gross domestic product (GDP) is generated [in the Greater Golden Horseshoe (GGH)]. A well-functioning transportation system is critical to economic prosperity. Time waiting for a bus, time stuck in traffic on the way to meet a client or to make a delivery — all of these are costs to our economy,” the paper published by the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) late Tuesday said.
