As usual, great stuff comes out of your area. I enjoyed scanning through
it. While i have no information to add, may I ask if I could propose
your involvement as follows:
Tomorrow, Richard and I are meeting with the Chair of GO Transit who
also happens to chair a sub panel on transportation gridlock for the
Smart Growth Panel looking at all of South Central Ontario. His job is
to develop a vision for transportation in this large area. Richard and I
will propose to him that the CST could well be of value in identifying
principles or strategies (or some other like approach) for consideration
in developing this vision and recommendations. If he agrees, you would
be a good addition to the team that we could pull together.
This is all very speculative at this time but I thought we would share
that for now.
