We’ve been busy! This past week the Guelph Young Liberals have had the opportunity to attend and participate in numerous exciting events! And there’s more to come!
We started our consecution of events on Tuesday with a Breakfast Speaker Series featuring Toronto Centre MPP the Honourable Glen Murray. As the Minister of Transportation, and Minister of Infrastructure, we were fascinated by the information, ideas, and new investments Glen Murray discussed during our breakfast meet. He, and our MPP the Honourable Liz Sandals have been working hard with Premiere Kathleen Wynne to bring new state of the art transportation services to the City of Guelph, and other peripheral cities that lack adequate transportation to and from the GTA.
The UGYL was ecstatic to hear that the Government of Ontario has committed to investing in Rapid Electric Rail (commonly known as RER15) from the Guelph GO Station directly to and from Pearson International Airport, and Union Station in Toronto every 15 minutes! We’re excited for the new opportunities this will bring to U of G students, and all Guelph Residents as it unfolds over the next 10 years.
The investment in RER15, along with the two morning and evening GO Trains brought to the City of Guelph thanks to the spectacular work of the Wynne, Murray, and Sandals is undoubtedly an incredible investment in the city. Not only do these services create new economic opportunity for Guelph citizens and businesses, but it also reduces the commuting time, and environmental impact of the commuter congestion on the 401.
For more information on the commitment to improving Guelph Transit, or all the other great services our MPP Hon. Liz Sandals has been working to provide us, visit her website at http://www.lizsandals.onmpp.ca or ask us a question at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s get GOing on improving Guelph transportation!
