Wynne pledges Ottawa LRT a "priority'

Premier Kathleen Wynne insists the Liberals are the party needed in the driver's seat to make Ottawa's transit dreams a reality.

Wynne says the choice is clear which party will back big transit projects.

"As part of this commitment, a re-elected Liberal government would make the funding of phase two of Ottawa's light rail transit a priority," she said.

She says PC Leader Tim Hudak won't do the same.

"He wants to take your LRT and plunk it down as a subway in downtown Toronto.  For Liberals that is just not on.  Not happening.  No way."

Wynne made the comments while speaking to a packed crowd at the headquarters of Ottawa Orleans Liberal candidate Marie-France Lalonde who is battling PC candidate Andrew Lister.
