“Having followed the development of this initiative closely for several years I believe it has potential to compliment individual municipal transit plans with a comprehensive network that will provide options for urban and rural passengers as well as those commuting to Canada’s Capital from farther afield. It integrates both the Ontario and Quebec jurisdictions across the National Capital Region, which is crucial if this area is to develop in a sustainable and efficient direction. It brings together innovative thinking and a financing concept that has been successful in other major cities. The plan put forward by Moose Consortium deserves serious consideration and proper public attention and debate.”
