USD 1 billion for Ottawa’s LRT

OttawaCanada Federal Government has pledged USD 1 billion in funding for stage two of Ottawa’s light rail system, according to a letter Orleans MP Royal Galipeau sent the mayor.
The announcement comes after the Ontario Liberals pledged to financially support Ottawa’s light light rail system earlier this year, and ahead of the federal election in October. Work on stage one of light rail in Ottawa continues and is scheduled to be completed in 2018.
“I look forward to formalizing these funding commitments so we can move forward with construction in 2018,” Watson said in an emailed statement.
