David Collenette Ousted from High Speed Rail Committee Chairmen Role

David Collenette
According to John Michael McGrath, he has stated on twitter that the Premier's Office confirms David Collenette has been removed as chair of high-speed rail planning advisory board.

In doing so, Doug Ford just got rid of Canada's most knowledgable former federal politician on passenger rail. No real surprize to supporters of modern passenger rail service.

There has never been a provincial or federal provincial Tory party that has supported modern passenger rail in Canada. Get ready for more massive road building to further sink Ontarians into debt, environmental chaos and lost productivity from being stuck in traffic.
