More housing will keep costs down for families and help reduce gridlock in the region
The Ontario PC government is building more than 40,000 homes near transit in York Region with new transit-oriented communities (TOCs) at the future Bridge and High Tech stations along the Yonge North Subway Extension.
By building transit-oriented communities around the subway extension in this growing region, the government will also reduce gridlock, create economic opportunities and support 19,000 new jobs in the region.
“After decades of inaction by previous governments, our government is saying ‘yes’ to building housing and subways,” said Doug Ford, MPP for Etobicoke North and Premier of Ontario. “Others will find any reason to say ‘no’ to delay desperately needed housing and transit with more studies, committees or reports. Instead, our government is keeping costs down for families by building more homes and tackling gridlock head-on by building subways, Highway 413 and the Bradford Bypass.”
Under the leadership of Premier Ford, our PC government is saying “yes” to putting more shovels in the ground for new transit and homes, helping more families realize their dream of home ownership every day.
