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.
