“He said if the McGuinty government demands municipalities adhere to its Places to Grow growth targets “it has no excuse to deal this crucial transportation infrastructure project.
“I urge the Minister of Transportation to act. I urge him to commit to make this project a GO,” said Arnott in the legislature. “”

The big question as the article hints to — will there be money for this in a years time? Will the Federal, Provincial, and Municiapal governments have budget room? Only time will tell..

“That is one very important reason that any GO Transit extension through Halton Hills must include a stop in the Acton area. On October 9, I convened a meeting at my Queen’s Park office with representatives from GO Transit, along with Town of Halton Hills representatives Mayor Rick Bonnette, Councillor John Duncan, and Chris Mills, Director of Infrastructure Services. They capably conveyed the need for this initiative and the support of their communities. Plans underway at GO Transit cannot, however, be completed without a firm commitment from the Government of Ontario.”
