They campaigned on a slogan to “get it done,” pledging to build highways and transit infrastructure and open up the “Ring of Fire,” a mineral-rich area in northern Ontario.

Promise History

2.11.27 - “[A re-elected PC government will] save families in Durham Region and across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area […] money by offering more transit options”

This promise comes as part of the Ford government’s wider pledge to improve public transit and highways such as the Bowmanville Go extension, the Ontario Line subway, and investment in transit infrastructure. Although these promises are in progress, the government cannot currently say that it is saving residents in Durham Region and the GTHA time by offering transit options. Therefore, this promise remains not yet rated.

“The [Greater Golden Horseshoe] region has experienced substantial growth over the last several decades. As this growth continues into the next 30 years, adding approximately one million people every five years, the region and its transportation system will face intensified challenges coupled with changing demographics, shifting work-live patterns, climate change impacts and accelerated advancement of new technologies. It is therefore vital to put in place a sustainable, interconnected and resilient plan to provide a 30-year vision for mobility across the region that will guide and align planning and investments by the province and other transportation providers.”
