I was told, by many people many, many, many, times, that the Hurontario Main LRT was free, Free, FREE!!!
So it’s very interesting to me to see a budget amendment request on the upcoming meeting agenda. An anonymous source tells me to expect a request from Metrolinx in the magnitude of $10 to $15 Million, but that is not yet confirmed by an independent source, so treat it as rumors and scuttlebutt for now. After all, we shouldn’t jump to conclusions: maybe it’s an amendment to reduce the transit budget since the LRT Is going to save us so much money.
It’s NEVER, and I mean NEVER, a budget reduction.
Can’t wait to see how munch money this totally and completely free LRT is about to cost us.
Oh wait, here it is, today’s request is a meager $13,000,000.00.
Remember when Brampton Mayor Linda Jeffrey told us it was fully funded by the Province? Which I guess was a lie? Good times!
