Premier Doug Ford’s provincial government is unveiling its nearly $30-billion transit expansion plan — including a new 15-kilometre “Ontario Line” stretching from Ontario Place to the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto.

Meant to replace the concept of a Downtown Relief Line to ease what Ford calls the “dangerous congestion” on the city’s subway network, the proposed line will be double the length proposed by the city at a cost of nearly $11 billion.

“We’re making the largest investment in new subways in Canadian history,” Ford told reporters on Wednesday.

The premier and Transportation Minister Jeff Yurek are making the announcement at 10:30 a.m. at GO Transit’s Willowbrook maintenance facility in south Etobicoke. You can watch the presentation in the video above.
