Prime Minister Justin Trudeau joined Premier Kathleen Wynne in Barrie today to announce federal infrastructure funding for Ontario to fund transit projects. The money will go to pay for track upgrades, new buses, shelters and upgrades to stations in five cities -- Toronto, Ottawa, Waterloo, Barrie and Sudbury. (Federal officials say Ontario has yet to finalize a funding wish list of water and wastewater projects, something that it must do over the coming months to get 570-million dollars for projects like water treatment facility upgrades and sewers.)
