Mayor Crombie Lauds Trudeau Government’s Game-Changing Transit Funding

The Trudeau government has allocated unprecedented funding to help Canada’s cities, like Mississauga, press ahead with important city-building priorities like breaking gridlock, building transit and strengthening our local economy, Mayor Crombie said today.

Mayor Crombie made the comments following Prime Minister Trudeau’s detailed announcement about transit funding projects made available through the Canada-Ontario Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF).

Through PTIF, Mississauga will receive $58 million in investments for 51 separate projects (detailed in the backgrounder).

Mayor Crombie added “Mississauga’s Council-approved pre-budget submissions to the Trudeau government repeatedly called for increased funding to build transit and infrastructure and we are seeing the priorities of Canada’s sixth-largest city reflected in the work being undertaken by the Prime Minister and the federal government.”

“I further welcome news that the Trudeau government will invest more than $1.8 billion in the GO Transit Regional Express rail project,” Mayor Crombie added. “This is another important milestone as Council and staff move ahead with our ongoing efforts to push for all-day two-way GO Train service with the Missing Link plan.

Mayor Crombie acknowledged the important and ongoing relationship the City of Mississauga enjoys with its federal Members of Parliament (MP), adding that “this past week we once again met with Mississauga-Malton MP Minister Navdeep Bains to discuss how the funding commitments in the recent federal budget will be implemented and how these commitments will directly impact Mississauga and our residents.”

Mayor Crombie concluded “this year marks the 150th anniversary of Canada’s founding. I have always said that Canada’s municipalities are the cornerstone of Confederation and today’s funding commitments are an opportunity for local governments to shape our nation’s promising future.”
