GTA transit expansion needs new money: Wynne

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne says new revenue streams are necessary to fund a $2 billion-a-year transit expansion aimed at easing gridlock in the GTA.

Wynne made the comments on Wednesday while addressing a crowd at the CivicAction forum, where she said it’s a “misconception” that the money required to fix transit in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area can be found in the existing provincial budget.

“New money has to be found,” Wynne said.

The Liberal Leader pointed to a CivicAction poll that showed 71 per cent of residents in the region are fed up with gridlock and traffic congestion, while only 43 per cent believe new funds must be raised to find a solution.
