The Ford Government’s budget proposes spending billions of future dollars on highway and transit expansion. Investments in future transit lines will do nothing to provide the service we need today.
Instead of supporting reliable service for riders it gives away billions to car drivers by eliminating plate renewal fees and removing tolls on highways. This works against our environmental goals.
Highway expansion will only increase congestion and travel times. Together with a lack of operational support, this budget will make it harder for people to get to work, and handicap cities and transit systems trying to recover from the pandemic.
