The Ontario government is set to announce details of a $28.5 billion transit plan on Wednesday, but city officials are out of the loop and one councillor says the province is holding Toronto “hostage.”
For the first time, Premier Doug Ford publicly shared an exact dollar figure on transit funding for the Greater Toronto Area during an event in Burlington, Ont. on Tuesday, and said more details will come during a news conference with transportation minister Jeff Yurek on Wednesday.
But on the eve of the announcement, Coun. Mike Layton questioned the lack of information flowing to Mayor John Tory and city manager Chris Murray from the province, calling it a “mystery plan.”
