That’s because the city is pouring about $3.2 billion (bringing total LRT spending to $6 billion) into the toilet on Phase 2 and for that inflated figure, the city is tunnelling the line down the Macdonald Parkway where no one lives and doesn’t get to Barrhaven or Kanata. Astounding.
Now we see the federal government has done about as much due diligence on this project as the City of Ottawa. It’s still giving money for Phase 2 despite the massive over-spending.
If this is how the city and federal government operate, it bodes poorly for the taxpayer in the future.
