Cambridge deserves GO trains as much as Kitchener,
mayor says

by Kevin Swayze

If Kitchener can get a “GO-lite” passenger rail service in 2011, then Cambridge deserves a passenger rail connection to Toronto by 2014, Mayor Doug Craig says.

In his inaugural speech Monday night, Craig opened his fourth term as mayor with a challenge to Waterloo Regional council to support a “much more sensible” option to bring GO trains westward from Milton. Last month, the province announced two trains a day into downtown Kitchener morning and evening, via Guelph. That’s half of what was proposed earlier in the year, in an effort to start the service on the cheap.

For two decades, city politicians lobbied with no success for extension of GO train service to Cambridge. Regional officials presented a business case to the province last year supporting eventual extension of GO train service to Cambridge along the Canadian Pacific Railway lines into Galt, but the idea has gone no further.
