Active Transportation Groups Call on Federal Government to Fund Pedestrian & Cycling Infrastructure

Walk Toronto has joined with the Toronto Environmental Alliance and Cycle Toronto in calling on the federal Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, Amarjeet Sohi, to include walking and cycling projects in the major infrastructure investments planned for the next four years.

Walking and cycling meet all three of the federal infrastructure plan's priorities: transportation, environmental improvements, and building communities. There are numerous "shovel-ready" projects that improve walking and cycling awaiting funding in Toronto, including the Eglinton Connects project that would accompany the Eglinton Crosstown LRT, and recreational trails that would complete the trail network.
