Ontario government to fund transportation infrastructure

Yesterday, Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty announced that his government will help create jobs and boost the province’s infrastructure by investing $32.5 billion over the next two years. The funds support a number of projects and result in about 300,000 jobs.

Transportation projects — including public transit projects — receive the most funding — $9 billion.

We’ll learn details of which specific projects the government is funding when Finance Minister Dwight Duncan unveils the provincial budget on Thursday.
