Niagara politicians push back as Doug Ford won't commit to Go Train service

Niagara politicians are speaking out after Ontario PC Leader Doug Ford wouldn't commit to year 'round Go Train service in Niagara by 2021.

During a stop in Welland yesterday, Ford said he wants to review the plan and consult with the people before he makes a final decision.

He is now receiving push back on Twitter:

Niagara Regional Chair Alan Caslin has put out an invitation to meet with the Ontario Tory leader, saying 'Go Transit will create 2400 operations jobs, 1200 construction jobs, and connect Ontarians in GTHA with some 12,700 Niagara jobs."

St. Catharines MP Chris Bittle also expressing disappointment, writing 'this is an issue Jim Bradley worked tirelessly on to get a commitment and a plan in place. A Doug Ford Ontario would leave Niagara behind.'

While MPP for Niagara Falls Wayne Gates says 'we cannot afford to let Doug Ford derail the Go Train that our Niagara community worked so hard to secure.'
