The Standing Committee on Transit, Infrastructure and Communities is meeting today in Ottawa to discuss a National Public Transit Strategy–something that came up in a ReNew Canada roundtable held this September.

During that roundtable, Toronto Transit Commission’s Anna Pace said, “We need a federal government that recognizes that transit is hugely important to the economy of the country’s largest cities.”

Rod McPhail, director of transportation planning for the City of Toronto said, “The federal government must get more involved; we all know the reasons why it doesn’t.”

Witnesses at this meeting will be representatives from the Canadian Urban Transit Association and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities.
