Transport Action Ontario was invited to provide a short verbal presentation on recommendations for the 2021 Ontario Budget to Finance Minister Peter Bethlenfalvy on January 29. We also submitted the same remarks plus supplemental information to the Ministry of Finance.
We proposed a list of 9 items. These are described in the supplemental material, and can be boiled down into 4 overarching themes:
- Fulfill promises on intercity public transport
- Continue to invest wisely in GTHA transit
- Cancel the GTA West expressway (Highway 413)
- Support Short Line Railways
