Ontario will set up an advisory board to provide strategic support for the province's high-speed rail plans, Premier Kathleen Wynne announced earlier this week. The board will engage with the private sector, stakeholders and indigenous communities about the project, according to a press release issued by Wynne's office. Ontario is considering providing high-speed rail service between Toronto and Windsor.The board's members will have experience in technology, engineering, environmental sciences, transportation planning, and the financing and delivery of infrastructure projects.Ontario in May released a report that recommended a phased approach to delivering high-speed rail along the Toronto-Windsor corridor. The first phase involves establishing the advisory board.The province also has launched a website to provide more information to southwestern Ontario residents about the project. The website also will enable locals to provide feedback.The proposed high-speed line would serve a corridor that's home to more than 7 million people. The route would include stops in Windsor, Chatham, London, Kitchener-Waterloo, Guelph and Toronto Union Station, with a connection to Toronto Pearson International Airport.Ontario chose the Toronto-Windsor corridor because it's a hub for startups, research institutions, and the manufacturing and agricultural sectors, according to Wynne's release. The region also is growing faster than its current transportation network can accommodate."High-speed rail will dramatically change what's possible for people in Southwestern Ontario," Wynne said. "Canada's first high-speed rail service will also help companies along the Toronto-Windsor corridor to continue to attract top talent and take their business to the next level."
