Ontario pitches in for Ottawa LRT

Six hundred million smackeroos is what the McGuinty government in Queen’s Park is pledging toward phase one of Bytown’s transit re-do. Good on them!

Um, but wait – let’s see… municipal elections are in 2010… hmmm…

What are the chances of the federal contribution being scuttled if a new non-Harper/Baird/Poilievre-friendly Mayor is elected???

Which is what most of us are hoping for.

Sigh.

I won’t see LRT in Bytown until after I retire in 2022…
