The Clean Train Coalition asks if the re-elected Wynne is already wavering on electrification.
mere days after the provincial election, an article in The Toronto Star would suggest Metrolinx is sending messages intended to lower expectations for electrification of the Union-Pearson Express train
The Star reported last week that the former president of GO thinks that electrifying the UP Express is going to take much longer than promised—8 to 10 years to “hang the wires, locate, build and connect electrical substations along the corridor.”
Last year, however, Glen Murray, the Minister of Infrastructure and Transportation, said that “the earliest date that we can achieve electrification would be 2017, and I am very committed to working with [Laura Albanese] to realize that timeframe.”
Murray also tweeted that electrification would be complete by 2017.
