|Joint Statement: Niagara GO Announcement|
|Submitted: June 28th, 2016|
The plan unveiled today by the Province to bring daily GO Train service to Niagara is great news for all of our communities. We appreciate the collaborative relationship that Premier Wynne initiated with us and that Minister Del Duca continued alongside our local government MPP Jim Bradley.
There is now a firm timeline and we look forward to working with Metrolinx and the Province on this important service for Niagara residents. Strengthening our connection to and from the GTHA enhances our ability to attract new people to Niagara, creating new opportunities for job creation and business expansion.
Today we are seeing the power of speaking with one voice. This announcement is the result of a strong and united effort across Niagara to make our number one priority of daily GO Train service a reality.
The enthusiastic support of our business community, hospitals, post-secondary institutions and the thousands of residents who lent their voice and passion has played a vital role in making today’s announcement possible.
