Ontario Liberals: Light Rail for Hamilton

A pre-election press release indicates the Ontario Liberal Party plans to pay for building light rail in Hamilton, not just bus rapid transit.

By Ryan McGreal

The Ontario Liberal Party recently issued an election campaign press release calling on electors to re-elect the Liberals and "keep Ontario moving forward".

The press release specifically mentions "two light rail lines across Hamilton" among the rapid transit projects the Liberals plan to finance via MoveOntario 2020.

It appears that the Liberal government simply assumes the rapid transit lines it has promised for Hamilton will be light rail.
