Ottawa suburbs? NO LRT for YOU!

Friday, June 6th, 2014

Voters in the ridings of Ottawa-Orleans, Ottawa West-Nepean and Ottawa South?

Yeah, you guys. Pay attention to who you vote for next week.

You know that LRT thingy that would be extended to your neck of the woods in Phase 2 of the project?

Ain’t going to happen if Timmie is Premier.

For the first time since this provincial election began, Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak was clear about whether a PC government would fund the second phase of light rail in Ottawa — and the answer was a resounding “No.”

“No, we can’t afford it,” Hudak said simply when asked about the project at a campaign stop in Ottawa South on Thursday morning.

While Hudak has said that he wouldn’t yank back the $600 million already approved for the 12.5-kilometre section of LRT currently under construction — it will run from Tunney’s Pasture to Blair Station — the PC leader said he won’t support the $1 billion of funding needed from the province to extend rail to Orléans in the east, Bayshore in the west, and Riverside South (with a possible airport link).

And his minions like Matt Young  are falling dutifully in line… though they must be cringing at the timing of this…

This is a pretty cool animation showing the before and the (sigh) after pictures of the electoral colours of Canada after Election #41.

Kudos to http://attaboy.ca
