Ontario Line budget ballooning by billions

June 21, 2024

KITCHENER — Ontario Greens Deputy Leader Aislinn Clancy released the following statement in response to news that the projected cost to build the Ontario Line subway has increased to $27.2 billion.

“This is a government that’s allergic to accountability.

For years, the Conservatives have refused to take responsibility for the ballooning costs and timeline of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT. Now, we’re seeing the same thing happen with the Ontario Line.

Estimated construction costs have nearly tripled since the Ford government’s initial announcement. When is this going to end?

The Premier needs to step up with a credible plan to deliver major transit projects on time and on budget, including by stepping up oversight of Metrolinx and its million-dollar CEO.”
