The Ontario government is undertaking a consultation to determine how they will invest in roads, bridges, transit and other critical infrastructure outside the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Areas. The consultation is essentially about how to stream the $15 billion the province has earmarked for infrastructure under the Moving Ontario Forward banner. The $15 billion is close to half of the total $31 billion in provincial spending committed for “community infrastructure” over the next 10 years. The other $16 billion is being allocated for transit projects in the GTHA.
