  • Ontario Line budget ballooning by billions

KITCHENER — MPP Aislinn Clancy and MPP Mike Schreiner released the following statement in response to news that the projected cost to build the Ontario Line subway has increased to $27.2 billion.

“This is a government that’s allergic to accountability.

For years, the government has refused to take responsibility for the ballooning costs and timeline of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT. Now, we’re seeing the same thing happen with the Ontario Line.

Estimated construction costs have nearly tripled since the government’s initial announcement. When is this going to end?

The Premier needs to step up with a credible plan to deliver major transit projects on time and on budget, including by stepping up oversight of Metrolinx and its million-dollar CEO.”
