Premier Kathleen Wynne announced today that the government has appointed a new advisory panel to review Metrolinx's Investment Strategy.
The strategy recommends ways to fund public transit across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA).
The panel will meet with stakeholders and residents in the GTHA to get input on Metrolinx's recommendations. It will also consider other options to fund public transit. The panel will report its findings to the government.
Making strategic investments in infrastructure, including transit, is one of the three pillars of the Ontario government's economic plan. Through the other two pillars, the government is also investing in people and fostering a dynamic, innovative business climate to help create jobs and strengthen the economy.
