Albanese touts start of ARL construction

Laura Albanese appeared yesterday with Premier McGuinty at the site of the Air Rail Link construction in Mississauga. McGuinty was there to say that construction of the line is “off to a strong start so that it will be in service for the Toronto 2015 Pan/Parapan Am Games”.

The Premier’s appearance has already drawn the scorn of our MP, Mike Sullivan. McGuinty has refused an invitation to meet with representatives from communities along the line who will be affected by the diesel trains. Sullivan said in his newsletter,

the Premier continued to display his contempt for our community by holding a photo-op at one of the air-rail link construction sites. His government’s news release proudly boasts of the purchase of “18 Diesel Multiple Units” that Metrolinx will operate along the line.

  1. This is chilling with all Ms Albanese’s posturing about electrification: she’s just a politician who flirts with the good of the community but really only does what she’s told, and Mr McGuinty could care less about what we have to breathe.

    Our tax dollars at work — that’s PRIVATE-public partnership.

  2. I saw that CFTO newscast mention this photo opp for like 5 sec & just read Libs talking points about this! Then I saw notice Laura there..why is she there..since when the airport is in York South Weston riding? Proves that she just loyal foot soldier. Once in while I take the Lawrence bus to the Spadina subway and when Iam riding the subway especially between Lawrence W and Eglinton W stops when the subway is outside..I think why can’t something like an above ground subway or LRT be bulid instead of these diesels trains to the airport? They are spending taxpayer bucks to build bridges, tunnels, sewers, and for what? premium service for the few…Just the majority for us will still take the hour riding the Lawrence bus and then subway downtown. Next year there will be prov election..Laura and Dalton will probably lose big time.. I hope Paul Ferriea runs chances are he’ll win.

  3. my bet is she won’t run. With two terms under her belt she will have qualified for the mpp’s pension
