Ontario Cycling Infrastructure Money to Double

Ontario's transportation minister says the government is spending more than twice the amount previously announced to help build bike lanes across the province.   

Steven Del Duca says 93 million dollars -- up from 45 million -- is being set aside this year to help 120 communities build bike lanes and biking infrastructure.   

It's part of a four-year municipal commuter plan that's meant to help the province reach its greenhouse gas reduction targets, and funding for the program comes from the proceeds of the cap-and-trade program.
