The initiative is to promote the innovation corridor between the region of Waterloo and the Greater Toronto Area.
The corridor is also known as Silicon Valley of the north.
In a press release to 570 News, The Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce says the corridor connects close to 13-thousand companies, close to 3-thousand start-ups and over 200-thousand employees.
With those numbers right in front of us, Art Sinclair from the Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce says two way, all day Go-Train service is at the top of the agenda.
“I think everyone agrees that it’s a key consideration getting government approval on two-way, all day Go Train service between Toronto and Kitchener.”
Sinclair adds that statistics show that there is a lot of people who travel from Toronto to Kitchener-Waterloo for work.
“Statistics have consistently indicated that there are just as many, if not more people commuting into Waterloo Region every day from Toronto so, I think that that is a pretty good indicator that two-way, all day Go Train service is required.”
The announcement comes prior to Toronto Mayor John Tory’s visit to Waterloo Region this week.
Mayor Tory will be a keynote speaker at a luncheon Wednesday, which is being put on by the Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce.
