Here We GO?

Last evening I stopped by the GO Open House/Information session at market square. In addition to a snazzy new tote bag, some GO Mints (??) and a free pen, I also received some very interesting information about the process of deciding how/where/why to put in expanded GO rail service. Market Square wasn’t packed, but it did seem like a good turnout — many local residents quite eager for this to happen, at least according to the snippets of conversation I heard as I walked around the event last evening.

For what it is worth, I think regular GO Train service to Niagara is long overdue. When I first moved here I was a little shocked to discover that GO service was not available in this region. It just seems like a no-brainer to me. Instead, we have jam-packed lanes on the QEW and increasingly long and frustrating drives to Toronto. (Is it any wonder that I rarely go in to Toronto?) With events like the 2014 Congress of Humanities & Social Sciences and the 2015 Pan Am Games (which will include Niagara sites) coming up, it seems like this sort of transportation system is not really optional.

Fingers crossed!
