Tweets from reporters who were at Mulroney's speech just now.

  • Mulroney says government will require owners of property adjacent to transit projects to require permits for work that could affect transit. Mulroney says government will require owners of property adjacent to transit projects to require permits for work that could affect transit.
  • New law would require builders to acquire a permit for any development that could interfere with transit construction;
  • Metrolinx to be given new powers to coordinate utility relocations;
  • New authority to assemble land for transit projects - presumably, changes to expropriation law;
    • Minister says government will “modernize” the process of assembling lands for transit projects (read expropriation). She says property owners’ rights will still be respected.
  • Also, changes to environmental assessment law to smooth the way for priority transit projects.
    • Minister says the current environmental approval process “does not offer the flexibility needed” to get transit built quickly. Changes coming, but this “does not mean that we intend to relax any environmental protections.

New official webpage:
Wow I'm actually very disappointed by their lack of urgency on this project... 10 YEARS for short extension?! By their standards 10 will turn to 15 years minimum

Takes time to grade separate. Doing it the right way. The Ford way.
You'd think that they would've applied lessons learned from ect to find shortcuts and optimizations.....the project timeline is almost the same as the current one. And they dont even need to tunnel much
