TRILLIUM TALK: Digging around Doug Ford's $17B 'signature' project

Every Sunday morning, one of our legislative reporters from The Trillium provides an inside look at the week that was in Ontario politics — and the week ahead

Welcome back to Trillium Talk, your must-see briefing from Village Media’s team of journalists at the Ontario Legislature. 

Every Sunday, Scott Sexsmith sits down with one of our staffers at The Trillium to talk about the week that was at Queen's Park — and the week ahead.

Joining us today is Charlie Pinkerton, part of The Trillium team of journalists recently nominated for a National Newspaper Award for their in-depth reporting on the influence of land developers in Ontario politics.

Pinkerton has been digging into another controversial topic: the Ford government's "signature" Ontario Line, a $17-billion-plus transit project that will build 15.6 km of rail connecting key parts of Toronto.

If you haven't read his latest story about how the Ontario Line will transform one particular neighbourhood, you should.
