Ontario Government Wants Your Opinion on High Speed Rail
Ontario High Speed Rail
The Ontario government moving ahead with plans to build high speed rail between Toronto and Windsor, a first for Ontario and Canada. Currently, they are in the early stages of the planning, design and environmental assessment work. You can learn more from visiting their WEBSITE.
They want to hear from you during the planning, design and EA process! Your input will help inform the evaluation process and will influence decision making. Have your say and sign up for their mailing list to stay up-to-date on the program.
The route identified in the Special Advisor’s Report is a concept route only. High speed rail is a priority initiative and the EA Terms of Reference will be scoped to identify and evaluate route alternatives for high speed rail from Kitchener-Waterloo to London.
Getting Your Input
Some of the issues they have heard from you so far include the potential impact of high speed rail on farmland, road access and travel patterns, and wildlife. All of these issues, and more, will be taken into consideration during the EA process.
They know how important it is to hear what people are saying and we take your input and views seriously. As the program moves forward we will be hosting public engagement sessions, with the first planned for September 2018. In the meantime, they welcome you to EMAIL them with any of your questions or concerns.
