Downtown Barrie Station is a one stop extension of the Bradford line into downtown Barrie rather than stopping at the South end of the city (similar to extending service from Aldershot to Hamilton GO Centre). The capacity expansion on various rail lines helps both VIA and GO, and it is my understanding it is the precursor to all day service on the Georgetown line as well as an expansion of that line to Guelph and maybe Kitchener. Most of the rest is caretaking except for the "training fuelling facility" at aldershot. That is puzzling.

I hope we spend our extra 16 million wisely. We should commit to using it towards our share of the LRT so we can put shovels in the ground asap after the BCA is done. If we get started during the recession it will save us costs, compared to waiting to the city's tax base recovers.
