Critical Issues for Ontario's Politicians

Note:  This post originally documented two issues. One of these has been split off in condensed format under the heading  New Electricity Strategy for Ontario.

Our elected representatives from municipalities, at Queens Park and in Ottawa are on vacation. They could use it as a “time-out” to research and collaborate on a couple of issues extending well beyond their next election.

Long Term Plan for a New 400 Series Expressway

An approach was suggested to elected members in a series of blog posts from 2007 to 2010. Advocacy by some County Wardens and a few MPPs must have caught the attention of the then Ontario Minister of Transportation.

Champions from north of the 401 to Georgian Bay never materialized to push for a 20 or 30-year expressway plan. Yes, the political ball was dropped, and as expected Provincial transportation planning continues to concentrate on the GTA and on improvements to the 401 -to the detriment of the northern 519 area.
