Re: Sell the Gardiner Expressway - Adam Vaughn

Well, at least they are calling it the "Ford Administration" and not the "Ford Regime".

Everyone know that the Gardiner is in rough shape for a long, long time. This is a infrastructure deficit and the previous government(s) failed to take care of.

In other new, many cities around Ontario and Canada have major infrastructure deficits, and in Kitchener it's $1,500,000,000.00 (yes, $1.5 BILLION) -- and they want money from the Feds and ON to help out with it. And that is for just for the core area's....However, we do have a $900,000,000.00 flashy new LRT being built, we had $100,000,000 for downtown redevelopment (and for what it's worth, it was well spent) and $70,000,000 for a new Consolidated Maintenance Facility (know known as the "KOF" (Kitchener Operations Facility)) but if we had money for that, money can be found for the other "more important" things.

In other words, none-provincially owned, or none-federally owned, should just figure it out. (Although Kitchener is suggesting that the Feds need to hand out $5,000,000,000.00 to the cities to help out with this -- GST money on gas purchase -- and I agree)
