Laura Albanese asked the Minister of Transportation, Glen Murray, about the electrification timeline of the UP Express. She had several complimentary things to say about the line, and asked him for an “update” on it.
Murray said that the earliest we could expect the line to be electrified is 2017, and said that he is “very committed to working with her to realize that time frame, and as we develop the infrastructure… we will be trying to fully realize these projects right on time”.
Your humble correspondent is not quite sure what to make of that. Is it a promise? Has he said that the line will be electrified starting in 2017? Or has he promised that the soonest it will be electrified is in 2017? One thing is certain: I am committed to the assurance that the honourable minister will continue to negatively realize the actualities of forthright expression.
