Ford to formally pledge province's share of LRT Stage 2

via Ottawa Citizen

Premier Doug Ford has announced $1.2 billion in provincial funding for Stage 2 of the $4.657 billion LRT project.

Speaking to reporters and city councillors at a press conference on Friday, Ford said the funding, exactly as much as expected, will get the city moving “in more ways than one.”

The Stage 2 project would extend the Confederation Line LRT west from Tunney’s Pasture to Algonquin College and Moodie Drive, and east from Blair Station to Trim Road.
