David Collenette, the ‘brains’ behind the UPX, is hard at work again, this time as a $500-a-day consultant for a high-speed rail project outlined in yesterday’s provincial budget.
He’ll be working on a ‘SuperCorridor’, “bringing high-speed rail to [southern Ontario] as part of the Province’s Moving Ontario Forward plan.”
I can’t wait.
Not content with one half-billion screw up, Collenette is, the province says, “working with Metrolinx and freight partners to explore potential improvements to GO rail services along the Toronto–Kitchener corridor.”
You could be forgiven for thinking we’d been through that already.
