Province of Ontario appoints special advisor
on uploading Toronto's subway system



Friday, August 31, Ontario Minister of Transportation John Yakabuski announced that the Government of Ontario was appointing Michael Lindsay as special advisor on uploading the Toronto subway system. According to a government news release, Mr. Lindsay and an advisory panel of as many as three experts “will support the government in determining the best approach for the upload, including the building and maintenance of new and existing subway lines.”

The Ontario news release continues, “The Toronto subway system is critical for the economic success of the region. An upload of the subway would help the province to implement a more efficient regional transit system, reduce costs and build transit faster. It could also allow the province to fund and deliver additional transit projects sooner.”

Also in the news release, the government explains that,

“Michael Lindsay has significant expertise in delivering large, complex commercial transactions related to public infrastructure. He has spent more than ten years supporting public and private entities pursuing major infrastructure programs and projects. He will accept no additional remuneration for his service as Special Advisor.

“Prior to his appointment, he worked as the Global Director of Infrastructure Planning & Advisory at Hatch and as Senior Vice President of Commercial Projects at Infrastructure Ontario, responsible for structuring public transit projects and modernizing public assets in partnership with the private sector.

“Before that, Mr. Lindsay was an Associate Principal with McKinsey & Company, where he was a core leader of the Canadian Public Sector Practice. He helped provincial and federal entities improve service, reduce costs, and analyze how best to deliver programs and projects in partnership with other levels of government.”
