How the internet reacted to Ford government's announcement of new 'Ontario Line'

Apr 10 2019, 11:34 pm

Premier Doug Ford announced a “historic” $28.5 billion transit plan for the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) Wednesday morning.

Of that, $10.9 billion will go to a new ‘Ontario Line,’ which will link Ontario Place to the Ontario Science Centre by 2027.

The Twittersphere, of course, blew up when news of the ambitious transit plan first broke.

While the news was greeted with a very positive response from some, with some Twitter users saying they think the line sounds like a good idea. Of course, not everyone felt the same.

Many Twitter users were quick to share their two cents on why Ford’s Ontario Line is a bad idea, highlighting that there are more cities in the province than just Toronto that the line should be servicing and how the line conveniently ends at the proposed site for Ford’s new casino.
