Metro Vancouver is not the only region in North America facing difficult choices about how best to meet the future transportation needs of a growing population – and how to pay for it. Like Metro Vancouver, which will add one million new residents over the next 30 years, the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area is projected to see its population increase by 40 per cent in the next 20 years.

To preserve and enhance their economic vitality and quality of life, both Metro Vancouver and the Toronto city-region cannot postpone significant investment in their transportation networks.

In Toronto, where political gridlock has led to inaction, Dr. Anne Golden led a panel in fall 2013 to find a viable transit investment strategy for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. She will describe the political and financial context that was blocking progress in Toronto, and set out the plan that she and her 12 panel members hope will break the political and transportation gridlock.
