Liberals promise $20 billion to public transit

RICHMOND HILL, Ont. – Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau has been on a sales tour this week, highlighting how his party believes infrastructure spending will give a needed jolt to municipalities.

Friday morning he was back in the Greater Toronto Area in the riding of Richmond Hill to highlight the public transit portion of his infrastructure plans.

The Grits intend to double infrastructure spending to 125-billion dollars over the next decade and nearly 20-billion dollars of that has been allotted to public transit.

Trudeau says the Liberals will be strong partners to the provinces to invest in things Ontarians and all Canadians need — and that includes transit.

He adds his party is the only one talking about investing once again in the future of Canada to create the growth we need.

Richmond Hill is considered one of the key battlegrounds to watch in this election.

Earlier this week, Trudeau highlighted his green investment promises of his overall infrastructure package during a visit to Trois-Rivieres, Quebec.
